Climb Maroon Peak

My wife and I have a last minute plan to climb Maroon this Saturday. I wanted to open it up to experienced, in shape hikers (you can do 40 RPs an hour, sustained). There is a bit of snow on Maroon as of today (wednesday), but I'm hoping it's gone by Saturday. Either way, plan to bring microspikes. Carpool may be an option for those interested. Check out the description on 14ers.com before signing up. This is a top 10 most difficult 14er.  I will post more details depending on if anyone signs up.

      RPs are 'Roach Points', from Gerry Roach's book. He gives Roach Points for each route, and they give you an idea of how long a route will take. Maroon is listed at about 500 RP's, although that might be a touch high. Pyramid's standard route is about 400 RP's for reference. Long's Peak keyhole route is about 380 RP's. Are you interested in doing Maroon? I ended up doing Harvard/Columbia instead yesterday. Will try for Maroon on the 21st maybe.

      Okay... you might put up a link for that in the future.
      No, long story but I'm not comfortable in my technical skills enough to try that - especially with snow on it.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
