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.
