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.
Now celebrating its twentieth year in print, this classic guidebook has helped thousands of ambitious hikers and climbers to summit as many of Colorado's fifty-four 14,000+ foot peaks as possible. For others, the guide has enhanced favorite weekend outings, where numbers of climbs matter less than the exhilaration of simply ""reaching the top""! In this twentieth anniversary edition, the foremost guide to the Fourteeners continues its longstanding emphasis on minimum impact routes and hiker responsibility. Walt Borneman is a founding director of the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative, a non-profit volunteer organization that builds and maintains trails and teaches awareness about preserving these fragile alpine environments. Reflecting the group's goals, this anniversary edition offers climbers updated information about the established, minimum impact routes on each peak. Unlike other Fourteener guides grounded in technical mountaineering, this work continues to look at the place of each mountain in Colorado's history while focusing on the safest accessible routes. Time-tested route and elevation profiles, detailed maps, and captivating photos round out the volume. Twenty years after its first printing, A Climbing Guide to Colorado's Fourteeners remains the authoritative guide to Colorado's majestic peaks.
