Format: Paperback
Hiked all of the 14'ers at least once (half of them at least twice) from 2001-2005 when I lived in CO using the 2nd edition of this book and accompanying maps. Absolutely a must - I wouldn't have (and, with my sense of direction - or lack of the same) couldn't have done it without the book. Excellent maps and trail descriptions. Especially valuable when I first got "hooked" on 14'ers by giving me a lot more confidence that I could actually complete an easy peak (started with Gray/Torreys), was essential for the more remote, challenging and relatively less traveled peaks. Can't recommend it highly enough.

I have several books on mountain climbing and some just for the 14ers in Colorado. This book is very useful because:
- its current
- concise and to the point
- tell you what you really need to know to make the climb
- helpful charts

I like the book because it covers all the major and minor routes up 14er's. Although I would not climb some of the more challenging routes, it is interesting to read about them. I was also impressed with the descriptions of difficulty in various seasons. It is very complete, although each route is described only briefly. The 14er's web site contains better information to keep you from getting lost on the climbs.

This is the ultimate guide, giving all the routes and options. Others just cover the favorite or most common route. Would not recommend taking on these mountains without this as a resource.

Good information, he's been there. Gerry Roach has climbed all of these peaks at least once, most of them more, often taking different approaches and using different techniques. He explains it in a manner that can be easly understood by all. Novice to expert can take something away from this book. In addition to the climbs he provides a lot of peripheral information on the process and mountain environment which is interesting and often helpful. A sensible investment if you are "going walking" in the mountains. dp

Mr Roach has produced the definitive guide to anyone wanting to hike and/or climb 14,000 ft mountains in Colorado. It is well organized and thorough providing multiple options for each peak, options to link peaks together in a single trip and includes information on some non-14er peaks. You can tell that the book was developed from lot o experience and that experience makes this text stand out among other texts with same subject matter.

If you plan on climbing just one 14'er or all of them, Gerry Roach will get you there safely. His entertaining and endearing writing style and amazing attention to detail separate this book from the pack of most hiking guides. I'd recommend any of his other books as well. Gerry is one of a kind- the best!

Gerry totally nailed it with this one! I read several 14er books, even one from a hiking/mountain club, and they all pale in comparison. None of them are bad books. They all provide good information. Here is the key. Gerry gives info and details that matter. The maps are important. The history is nice. The GPS coordinates are appreciated. Where does Gerry separate from the crowd?

- Introduction: This is one of the few books where I would say, "Thou must read the Introduction." And not just read it, but embrace it. Gerry gives you some details that are practical, essential, heck, even could save your life. READ THE INTRODUCTION!
- Routes: Gerry gives better details on every route you can think of and others you may have never known about. In each book I have seen, no other gives you the number of routes and options like this book.
- Experience: When you read this, you feel like it was written by someone who has actually been there rather than collected a bunch of data and info from others. Read Gerry's bio on the back of the book if you are skeptical. He has earned the right to write this book.
- Extras: Details on the roads that get you to the trailheads like no other. He lets you know if special permission will be needed.

My one disappointment is there isn't a fourth edition. This edition was from 2011 and stuff changes every year. A route that was a Class 2 in 2010 could become a Class 3 in 2020. Areas that allow hikers in one year could have restrictions the next. The good thing is Gerry provides as many caveats as possible. Since he's been there and has the contacts, he would know. My suggestion is take his word, but verify weather, conditions, restrictions, etc. before you go. (By the way, Gerry tells you the same.)
