Description

By Dave Cooper

A veritable feast of year-round snow climbs in the high country. 

  • 40 of the finest snow climbs in Colorado
  • Organized by season for year-round snow climbing
  • Full-color photos and maps
  • GPS-enabled with waypoints for the approach and route

The Colorado mountains offer some of the finest snow and alpine ice climbing in the US; from winter ridge routes, to couloir and gully climbs in the spring and summer, to the alpine ice routes which form each autumn.

The climbs are organized by season and then technical difficulty and commitment and go from routes requiring little more than an ice ax and the requisite skills to technical climbs involving sections of serious ice and mixed climbing.

By including "classics" as well as a sampling of lesser-known high quality routes, as well as detailed maps and route descriptions, Cooper continues the tradition started in his best-selling Colorado Scrambles. GPS data for critical points on the approach and climb plus four-color photographs whet the appetite and provide additional information about the routes.
