Colorado Scrambles: Beyond the Beaten Path, second edition
By Dave Cooper

 

A detailed “tick-list” of the 50 best scrambles in Colorado.

 

• Includes many of the classic Colorado scrambles as well as many superb but little-known routes.


• Fully GPS-enabled to identify critical locations on both the approach and the climb.


• Full color maps and photos throughout.


The Colorado mountains provide endless opportunities for climbers of all skill levels, but until Dave Cooper wrote Colorado Scrambles no one had identified the classic third- and fourth-class climbs or "scrambles" of the High Country by the quality of the route. And while many of the routes have some exposure to significant heights and objective dangers like rockfall, most routes do not require the use of ropes or protection.

Written for the experienced hiker and mountaineer interested in not only bagging summits, but also in challenging, high-quality, remarkable routes, Scrambles contains detailed information on what makes the route classic and unique, access issues, how to start the climb, descriptions of crux sections, and route-finding tips. Extensive photographs clarify the route for the scrambler; the book is fully GPS-enabled to identify critical locations on both the approach and the climb, and detailed topographic maps makes routes easier to locate. You'll find scrambles in the San Juan Mountains, Sangre de Cristo Range, Park Range, Gore Range, Tenmile Range, Mosquito Range, Sawatch Range, Front Range, and Elks.

Born in Yorkshire, England, DAVE COOPER has spent the last 25 years exploring the Colorado mountains and has climbed extensively in many of the world's great ranges. He lives in Alma, Colorado.
