South to North traverse. Full summer conditions on Maroon and North Maroon, as well as the traverse. No water on the trails or traverse either. Plenty of loose rock as always, check your holds and look for the solid rock. The descent down North Maroon was soul crushing after the fun we had on Maroon and the Traverse lol. Plan for plenty of time to get down North Maroon.

Nice work and great pics! I enjoyed that descent. It might be because I'm always amazed it even goes when looking at it from afar.

Thanks for sharing the action shots. Your enthusiasm is contagious. I climbed the Bells separately. I enjoyed the airy views on the relatively short North Maroon descent. Be thankful you didn‘t descend Maroon Peak which also had great views, but the descent went on and on and on long after the summit adrenaline had worn off.
