Climbing Colorado's Fourteeners

From the Easiest Hikes to the Most Challenging Climbs

Book Description

Taking on one of Colorado’s 53 fourteeners—from stately Longs Peak and the iconic Maroon Bells to the easy to access Mt. Bierstadt—is becoming a pilgrimage for Colorado’s residents and its visitors. While more people than ever are climbing them, there’s still a dearth of good information about each mountain and its surrounding areas. Hiking Colorado’s Fourteeners fills that gap by informing adventurers—from the freshly-booted novice to the grizzled mountaineer—about each of Colorado’s iconic mountains over 14,000 feet tall.
