Looking for Colorado's Classic Peaks? Lower your sights.
Gerry Roach, who has climbed just about every mountain in Colorado and written several swift-selling guide books on the state, has a list of "classic peaks in Colorado" on his Web site.
He only includes one 14er, Snowmass Mountain.. The others are all 13ers or 12ers that few people climb.
Of course any "best peaks" list will always be either incomplete or overindulgent, but I could name ten peaks off the top of my head, starting with Mt. Sneffels, that are classics and don't make this venerable mountaineer's list.
Chime in with your favorites and we'll get a better list going!
