About Sawatch Range:

The Sawatch Range has the highest peaks in Colorado, and all the mountains are a lot of work to climb. There really aren't any good rock routes, but there are some excellent technical couloirs and good winter routes.
Nearest town or city: Leadville is the first town one passes through when approaching the Sawatch from the north (I-70). However, Buena Vista is the most central to the Sawatch (especially Collegiate Peaks) fourteeners and the nearest town to most of the Sawatch fourteeners.
Directions: The Sawatch is in between I70 and US 285(and extends just south of 285) west of US24. Access is different for each peak.
