Rock Climbing Colorado, 2nd: A Guide to More Than 1,800 Routes (Regional Rock Climbing Series)
Rock Climbing Colorado, 2nd: A Guide to More Than 1,800 Routes (Regional Rock Climbing Series)
by Stewart M. Green
Paperback from Falcon
ISBN: 0762738251
Rock Climbing Colorado is the only guide available that covers all the major climbing areas in the Centennial State, with routes ranging from 5.0 to 5.14 including the big cliffs and faces of Rocky Mountain National Park, the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, and the smaller crags and outcrops of Pikes Peak, Boulder, Rifle, Shelf Road, and Eleven Mile Canyon. In all thirty-seven areas covered, the book provides first-hand overviews and climbing histories, route beta and topos, detailed maps, and photos. Also included are suggestions for equipment and approach and descent information as well as listings for shops, gyms, and guide services.

This new edition is a complete revamp of what already was considered the essential guide for Colorado rock climbers. Stewart Green has revisited, explored, and documented nearly all of the book's 1,500-plus routes, updated all of the beta, and added hundreds of new routes developed since the first edition almost fifteen years ago. The new edition is full-color throughout, with color topos detailing each route.

The Colorado Trail Databook (Colorado Mountain Club Pack Guide)
by Colorado Mountain Club
Paperback from Colorado Mountain Club Pr
ISBN: 097996637X

An indispensable lightweight guide to the Colorado Trail with maps and GPS waypoints for all 28 segments.

The Colorado Trail Databook condenses the most important information from the seventh edition The Colorado Trail: The Official Guidebook (see page 20) into a pocket-sized pack guide that weighs just 2.6 ounces. The maps for each of the 28 trail segments use icons to mark the trailhead; access, where the CT intersects another trail, a road or a stream; campsites, availability of water, and points of interest. Other icons note services at supply points such as post offices, lodging, meals, telephones, banks, showers, outdoor stores, laundry, and medical help.

 
Colorado Scrambles: Climbs Beyond the Beaten Path (Colorado Mountain Club Guidebooks)
Colorado Scrambles: Climbs Beyond the Beaten Path (Colorado Mountain Club Guidebooks)
by Dave Cooper
Paperback from Colorado Mountain Club Press
ISBN: 0979966337

Completely redesigned and revised--now with five new routes in Colorado's High Country.

Colorado Scrambles includes more than 50 scrambling routes in the major mountain ranges of Colorado. Author Dave Cooper (Colorado Snow Climbs) climbed each of these high-quality routes, selecting them based on challenge, rock quality, location, and interesting route finding. In scrambling, climbers use both hands and feet to get up a mountain, using a rope, if at all, only to protect short sections. Other than a rope and a little hardware, all a climber needs is a good pair of boots, a daypack, and foul-weather gear. In technical terms, scrambling is moving over 3rd- and 4th-class rock, often with a considerable amount of exposure.

 
The Best Colorado Springs Hikes (Colorado Mountain Club Pack Guides)
The Best Colorado Springs Hikes (Colorado Mountain Club Pack Guides)
by Pikes Peak Group of the Colorado Mountai, Greg Long
Paperback from Mountaineers Books
ISBN: 0979966361

From the diverse scenery of its city parks to the 14,115-foot summit of Pikes Peak, the Colorado Springs area has hiking adventures for everyone.

The variety of hikes in the Pikes Peak region is astounding. If you are looking for an easy stroll close to town for rumination, a full-day adventure that will leave you gasping for air, or something in between, The Best Colorado Springs Hikes has 20 superb Colorado Springs trails. If you have ever wondered about that big mountain looming over town, you'll find a couple of paths to its summit. Lovers of geology can explore incredible sandstone formations in the Garden of the Gods and Red Rock Open Space, or the smooth granite of the Lost Creek Wilderness. For the less experienced, start with the Greenway Trail that wends its way along Monument Creek through downtown. On the other hand, if you have a good deal of hiking experience you can try the Barr Trail to the top of Pikes Peak--14 miles of steep hiking that is not easy and not particularly accessible.
