Since 1992, Colorado's Fourteeners has sold more than 40,000 copies, a testament to its accuracy and completeness. Now in its second edition, this climbing and hiking guide to Colorado's 14,000–foot peaks has been updated to include 250 routes. Besides the often–climbed standard routes, the guide describes many alternative and technical routes, with each route rated by grade, class, and snow steepness. Easy–to–read, full–color topographic maps and photographic overlays, cross–referenced to the route descriptions, make this the best book on the market for Colorado natives and visitors alike.

This is a great reference book. I probably picked it up more than a dozen times over the summer to read about the most common routes and alternative routes. This will always have a place on my bookshelf. Read full review
