 North Maroon - Northeast Ridge  

It was a damp and foggy morning when we decided to climb North Maroon. When we started you could barely see above tree line. We encountered many mountain goats who escorted us the steep gullies. The chimney was fun to climb and we used a rope coming down as the rock was slick due to the moisture in the air. The quote of the day came from my wife Kristi at 13,500... "where is the tube?". Needless to say we had pretty much zero visibility from the summit.

Pictures from our climb can be viewed on Merely a Flesh Wound at...
