Grizzly Peak Route Guide | A Great Centennial 13er

Grizzly Peak is Colorado’s tallest thirteener, just 12 feet short of being considered a fourteener. The standard way to climb the peak up the east ridge is a difficult class 2+ scramble, but it’s a relatively short 6 mile round-trip. It’s a good intermediate thirteener, but remember that you may be alone out there, so bring a partner if you can and plan ahead thoroughly with my Grizzly Peak Route Guide below. Safe travels on the trail!
