Colorado Scrambles includes more than 50 scrambling routes in the major mountain ranges of Colorado. Author Dave Cooper ( Colorado Snow Climbs ) climbed each of these high-quality routes, selecting them based on challenge, rock quality, location and interesting route finding. In scrambling, climbers use both hands and feet to get up a mountain, using a rope, if at all, only to protect short sections. Other than a rope and a little hardware, all a climber needs is a good pair of boots, a daypack, and foul-weather gear. In technical terms, scrambling is moving over 3rd- and 4th-class rock, often with a considerable amount of exposure.

- Route descriptions include length, difficulty and main features.
- Includes GPS waypoints for critical points (crux moves) and color topos for each route.

Born in Yorkshire, England, DAVE COOPER has spent the last 30 years exploring the Colorado mountains and has climbed extensively in many of the world's great ranges. He is the author of Colorado Scrambles from CMC Press and writes the Trail Mix" column for The Denver Post. He lives in Alma, Colorado.
