The Colorado mountains offer some the finest snow and alpine ice climbing in the U.S.; 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 range 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, plus detailed maps and route descriptions, Dave 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.
