Looking to purchase a guide book for Colorado Ice. I know Jack Roperts book is one of the best but is there another book that covers the Front Range? Thanks for any suggestions! Josh Hutch

Jack Roberts vol. 1 does cover a little front range, but you loose a lot of the western slope, and its hard to find. Mp.com has pretty good database of ice in Colorado... Ryan N

Bernard Gillett and Rossiter's high peak RMNP books have ice routes in them.

It's really too bad that not only did we lose Jack but he never got around to the next edition of his book. I'd nag him everytime I ran into him.
