Climbing Eagles Nest in Colorado: Tips & Route Info

Climbing Eagles Nest in Colorado: My Top 13er Advice

The Gore Range is one of the best, undiscovered mountain ranges in Colorado. Even though it’s located just north of I-70, well-within a day’s drive of Denver, most of the Range is protected as Wilderness, with few roads and long approaches. Combined with the fact that the range has no 14ers, these factors keep the Gore Range very quit. Eagles Nest is the ranges’ second tallest summit, and is a more difficult 13er than others, usually requiring two days to summit, with class 3 difficulty. Climbing Eagles Nest in Colorado is a fantastic adventure for experienced climbers. Here’s my route info to make it to the top.

Hi, I'm Alex!

In 2018, I watched in disbelief as dozens of people hiked into a storm on Longs Peak, unaware of the extreme danger. Soon after, I started The Next Summit to educate and empower the public to safely and responsibly explore America's mountains.
