Longs Peak is unquestionably the monarch of the park. It dominates all that is within sight of it, and enraptures all but the most heartless soul. Longs has a tremendous east face, and its great sweep has struck emotion into the hearts of many. The emotions range from awe to terror.

Gerry’s Rocky Mountain National Park guide is a celebration of the joys that come from climbing Colorado’s northern peaks. Rocky Mountain National Park offers the hiker and mountaineer a striking array of alpine challenges.  Most hiking and climbing activity in the park is centered on a handful of trails, but if you are tired of the crowds, try some of the routes in this guide where you might not see another person: Terra Tomah, the East Face of Nakai or the Chaotic Glacier, to name just a few of the Classics. Gerry first climbed Longs Peak in 1956, and finished climbing every named peak in the park in 1977. Gerry created this tiny tome out of love for this extraordinary place, and he continues to climb there actively today.
Published by Fulcrum in 1988, this 4 x 6 inch, 272-page, soft-cover classic is perfect for your pocket. The book’s scope is from Rocky Mountain National Park’s southern boundary to Cameron Pass north of the park. The book has rounded corners and 23 black-and-white photographs of the peaks. The guide covers 21 trailheads, 36 trails, 69 peaks and 143 routes. Forty-one percent of the routes are walk-ups (Class 1, Class 2, Easy Snow), 29 percent are scrambles (Class 3, Moderate Snow) and 30 percent are technical climbs (Class 4, Class 5, Steep Snow). Gerry designated 32 of these routes as *Classic*. The book has no maps. This pocket-sized book has gone out of print, and has become very hard to find. Gerry has a few copies that he will sell. If you are a collector of rare books, this may be your chance!
