How to Book
One of Colorado’s 4 “Great Traverses” this technical route allows you to climb both Crestone Peak and Crestone Needle in a single trip after hiking in and camping the night before.
One of the “50 Classic Climbs of North America”
Come experience why this rock climbing route on Crestone Peak has earned such a fantastic reputation. Lots of great 4th class scrambling followed by several pitches of fun and challenging 5th class rock climbing just below the summit.
Technical vs. Non-Technical
Technical (Crestone Peak, Crestone Needle) peaks require the use of harnesses, helmets, and ropes to protect sections of 4th and 5th class climbing that are required to reach the summit.
Non-technical peaks (Humboldt, Antero, Shavano, Tabeguache) while still challenging because of the altitude, do not require the use of ropes, and can be hiked in a group all the way to the summit.
Shavano and Tabeguache
These 14ers can be climbed separately or combined into a single day trip where you tag both summits via a non-technical ridge that connects them.
Single Day or Overnight
Most 14er trips can be done in a single day or turned into overnight trips. Overnight trips allow for a slower pace of the climb, or the opportunity to summit an additional 14er on the trip.
