|Peak:||North Maroon Peak (Unranked 14er)|

Conditions were dry for the entire route until about 500 feet below the summit. Luckily this was just above the Chimney. I took the Chimney but there is an easy class 3 bypass around the corner to climbers right. Above that the snow started and remained until the summit and was icy in several spots. We had microspikes with us but didnt use them on the way up they sure were helpful on the way down on the snow especially the icy sections. With possible winter weather moving in the next few days these good conditions probably won't last too long.
