Colorado Thirteeners at Pine Needle Dry Goods

  • Pine Needle Dry Goods 858 Main Ave #101 Durango (map)

Join us for the the long-awaited new release of “Colorado Thirteeners “ at Pine Needle Dry Goods. This amazing book is here just in time for alpine season!

Thirteeners are the perfect focus in a year that might make a bucket list of fourteeners a bit tricky. The author, Gerry Roach, moved to Boulder Colorado as a lad in 1954, and started climbing rocks and mountains shortly thereafter. Over six decades later, he continues pursuing his mountaineering passion with all the energy he can muster. An indispensable guide for both experienced and causal climbers interested in the "Centennial Thirteeners".

Although climbing Colorado's 14,000-foot peaks has become increasingly popular in recent years for both state natives and visitors, many of the best climbs in the state are actually 13,000-foot peaks. With an even mix of hikes, scrambles, and climbs, as well as an average of almost four routes per peak, there is something for everyone in Colorado's Thirteeners.

This event is one not to miss and is in partnership with Maria’s Bookshop.
