|This is the first-ever full-color guide to Colorado’s highest Thirteeners.
The 6x9 inch soft-cover book contains
368 pages and 196 routes on Colorado’s 59 highest Thirteeners between 13,800
feet and 13,999 feet. We call these peaks the “Centennial Thirteeners.” Combined
with the Fourteeners, the Centennial Thirteeners comprise Colorado’s 100 highest
peaks. The guide also contains 68 fine, full-color photographs of the peaks,
and 33 full-color, highly annotated topographic maps. In addition to the 59
headlined peaks, the guide also covers summit routes on 73 additional peaks.
The book is laid out in the same style as Gerry’s Fourteeners guide.
|Peaks covered include Mount Meeker, which is visible from Denver,
and more reclusive beauties such as Arrow, Vestal, and Jagged in the San Juan Range.
With an even mix of hikes, scrambles, and climbs, as well as an average of
almost four routes per peak, there is something
for everyone in Colorado’s Thirteeners. This book carries a heavy emphasis
on safety and the leave-no-trace environmental ethic. Colorado’s Thirteeners
is a grand celebration of the joys that come from climbing Colorado’s highest
|The second edition corrected errors from the first edition, brought the peak names up to date,
added summit coordinates and prominence numbers for all peaks, plus trailhead coordinates.
The second edition includes lists of Colorado’s Fourteeners, Thirteeners, Twelvers, and Eleveners.
These lists were synched with the lists in listsofjohn.com at press time.
|The first edition of this book is long out of print and has become quite rare. We have no first editions available for sale.
