Colorado is one of the best states for mountain climbing and hiking in the country. However, you should know how difficult the hike will be before heading out. Fortunately, 14ers.com has all the mountains in Colorado mapped on a difficulty scale from class 1 to 5. In this article we will be going over some of the most popular class 4 mountains, which means you will be climbing to move upwards. This will be a little tougher than the class 3 14ers. Also, if you are looking to buy or sell a home in Colorado, consider Mark Eibner as your agent.

Tough Colorado 14ers

To start things off, there’s North Maroon Peak in the Elk Mountain Range. This 14er has a standard climbing route along its northeast ridge, an elevation gain of 4,500 feet, and spans a distance of 9.25 miles. This peak is one of the most popular in the country, as it is one of the most photographed mountains in Colorado. Then there’s Pyramid Peak, North Maroon Peak’s sibling. Pyramid Peak has a standard route also along its northeast ridge, an elevation gain of 4,500 feet, and a distance of 8.25 miles. These two mountains are close to the towns of Aspen and Snowmass.

Higher and steeper is Mount Wilson in the San Juan Range. Wilson has a standard climbing route along its north slopes, an elevation gain of 5,100 feet, and a distance of 16 miles. Mount Wilson is part of a group that also includes Wilson Peak and El Diente Peak. And then there’s Sunlight Peak in the Eolus group of the San Juan Range. Sunlight Peak has a standard route along its south face, an elevation gain of 6,000 feet, and a distance of 17 miles. Remember that these are mountains that require climbing gear and should only be attempted by experienced climbers.
