To do them all in one trip would be quite a feat. One advantage is that the Bells or Pyramid can be done from Maroon Lake in a day. You might structure the trip by climbing the Bells first, followed by the loop to Snowmass Lake, climb Snowmass and then catch Pyramid on the way out. I think it would that take you 7 days at a minimum but would advise a few more days to rest up. Each of these 14ers is a technical and tiring day by themselves.
I appreciate the advice on direction. I think that is a great idea. If weather or difficulty prevents a summit (which I always plan on) I will probably just move to the next camp site. I did Snowmass last year and it was one intense climb.
