North Maroon Peak is the middle peak of the Maroon-Bells range. Although rising above 14,000 feet, it does not rise 300 or more feet above the saddle it shares with another 14er, Maroon Peak. For this reason, it is not officially ranked among the Colorado 14ers. It is however, a great challenge and achievement to reach its summit. It is considered to be an extremely difficult climb requiring proper equipment and mountaineering skills.
