There are fifty-four peaks in Colorado that rise above 14,000 feet. Climbing 14ers has become a favorite activity of locals as well as climbers from all over North America. In fact, more than half a million climbers attempt at least one Colorado 14er per year.
Organized by mountain range, The Colorado 14ers is a basic guidebook written in clear, concise, non-technical language with a certain amount of wit. This new edition includes notes by historian Walt Borneman on how each peak was named and who made the first ascent. The photos for this edition are by Todd Caudle, whose work has been featured in the Colorado Fourteeners calendar for the last ten years. Each route description includes precise directions for driving to the trailhead and tips on where to park, in addition to the route description itself.
