Finally Colorado's climbs get some attention! While there are other tomes out there on CO cycling and the big passes this book includes just about all of the climbs in the state. Good statewide coverage particularly around Denver/Boulder. Keep in mind the author focuses only on climbs (and not little hills but true climbs) so if you are looking for cycling routes this may not be the guide for you. If climbs are your interest then this is the guide. The stats are quite complete and while you can argue about the multiple rankings (at least the subjective ones) it certainly spurs debate and interest.

What is good:

Climbs, their description and location
Statistics on each (lots of data)
Climbing training (though somewhatbrief)
Pictures
Rankings
Compact size

What could be better:

Maps
All climb data in one place although that might make presentation difficult

All in all an excellent source for climbing info in Colorado. Worth the price of admission.

This book is extremely handy, with good beta about many climbs I wouldn't have known about otherwise, short of randomly happening across them on Strava. I have used it as a sort of checklist for weekend rides. In my opinion it's well worth the purchase and is a solid first edition. That being said, I had a few minor suggestions which I sent the author for a possible next edition, included below in case they help any future readers -
- Vail pass from either direction should be included
- Ute pass north of Silverthorne should also be considered as well
- A challenging Boulder climb worth adding is Linden Avenue
- I would recommend restating the caution for exposure on Red Mountain pass from the north. You mention that road carries a fair amount of traffic and that the lower part of the climb has some exposure. Considering that there is no guardrail and no shoulder (and not even a white line painted on the side of the cliff) in sections where a fall would be certain death, I suggest a bit stronger caution for this section of the road.
- I think the Deer Creek Challenge ("toughest century ride in the US") is worth mentioning

I found that the maps were lacking, and that it could have benefited greatley from a climb numbering system. I found my self constantly flipping back to the table of contents to find the climb number so that I could then try to find the climb on the 1 low resolution map of the whole state.

The description of the climbs was very good, but as a guide book it was a pain

This is an excellent resource for those that like to climb in Colorado. Every big climb seems to be listed along with multiple statistics and rankings. Some good pics are included as well and I like its small size. All in all a great guide to Colorado hills.
