Standard south ridge route past Crater lake, steep climb (~4000'/4mi) to summit in 6hrs from parking lot. Light wind with only a few afternoon clouds was good enough to make it a combo, traversing solo 2hrs to North Maroon Peak. Class 5 moves were fair & satisfying while route finding through loose rock west of ridge-line was not. Standard northeast route descent (~4500'/5mi) over cliff bands & talus fields finished the day at 12hrs. Scenic!
