Ascent Trip Report

Left the Maroon lake trail head in the dark at 4:45 am. Reached the amphitheater around 6:00am. Hike up to the saddle was a relentless grade and probably took 45 minutes. Ran into a mountain goat up there. The last 2 hours of the climb were the crux on the whole thing. Unrelenting class 4 moves in high exposure areas. Had issues with the group above us kicking rocks down and had to take cover for a brief period close to the summit. Summited around 9 and had world class views of the elks. No issues down climbing and was back to the car by 1pm. Fantastic hike!
