The peaks’ isolation from civilization is what makes them so special.
We have plenty of civilization. We need more peaks.
A civilized version of a peak is called a gym.
There is no comparison between a gym and Lone Eagle Peak.
– Gerry Roach - from Colorado’s Indian Peaks

Colorado’s Indian Peaks

– Classic Hikes and Climbs!

Located just south of Rocky Mountain National Park, the Indian Peaks Wilderness is one of the most accessible hiking and climbing regions in the West. Gerry climbed his first peak in the Indian Peaks in the mid 1950’s, and continues to climb there actively today. Gerry created his Indian Peaks guide out of love for this extraordinary place.

Sorry, this title is out of stock. It might be reprinted in 2014.
Published by Fulcrum in 1998, this second edition of the 1989 classic continues where the first edition left off. The 6 x 9 inch, soft cover book has 208 pages, a stunning full color cover photograph of Lone Eagle Peak, 21 trailheads, 29 trails, 49 peaks and 127 routes. The reason this volume’s numbers are slightly less than the first edition’s is that the scope of the book is from the Indian Peaks Wilderness- Rocky Mountain National Park boundary in the north to Berthoud Pass in the south. In the intervening years, Gerry’s Fourteener guide appeared which covers the Fourteeners south of Berthoud Pass, and it no longer made sense to include them in this volume. However, the second edition covers more routes in the Indian Peaks Wilderness than the first edition. The second edition has 42 annotated, black & white photographs. The second edition’s big improvement was the addition of 20 annotated, black-and-white topographic maps. The guide also has a locator map for the wilderness area and a list of 93 peaks in the area in and around the Indian Peaks Wilderness.

Published by Fulcrum in 1989, this long out of print classic has 254 pages and is a pocket sized 4x6 inches with rounded corners. The guide covers 23 trailheads, 33 trails, 49 peaks and 128 routes. The scope of the book is from the Indian Peaks Wilderness-Rocky Mountain National Park boundary in the north to Mount Evans in the south. The guide has 35 annotated, black-and-white photographs but no maps. The guide was out of print for 5 years before the second edition came out in 1998, it became very scarce, and now it is even harder to find a copy of this book. The on-line booksellers don’t even list it as out of print any more. Gerry has a few copies that he will sell, and if you are a collector of rare books, this may be your chance!
