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 bought this book because of reviews that I read and it did not disappoint. Even though I am not a hard core hiker and most likely will not even attempt to climb all the 14ers here in Colorado, I do like this book. It gives plenty of detail on the many different approaches to the different trail heads. The maps are very accurate and easy to follow.
I have done 6 of the 14ers so far with plans to do a few each year and see how it goes. I imagine this book will be well worn by the time I am done with it!

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.

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.

Nobody knows Colorado's Fourteeners like Gerry Roach. Like his Indian Peaks guide, this is a must-have for anyone wanting to do a couple Class 1 hikes, to those wanting a more technical adventure. Let Roach's expertise guide you to your next mountain adventure!
