Sawatch Range
Info and Peak List

14ers.com

The Sawatch Range (sometimes Saguache Range) is in central Colorado containing several of the Rocky Mountains' highest peaks, including Mount Elbert, the highest peak in the Rockies. The range is oriented along a northwest-southeast axis, extending approximately 70 miles (110 km) from 39 37' 36"N, 106 32' 13"W in the north to 38 33' 19"N, 106 17' 32"W in the south. The range contains 15 peaks topping 14,000 ft. The range forms a portion of the Continental Divide, and its eastern flanks are drained by the headwaters of the Arkansas River and Eagle River. The western side of the range feeds the headwaters of the Roaring Fork River and the Gunnison River. The Sawatch mountains in general are high, massive, and relatively gentle in contour. While some peaks are rugged enough to require technical climbing techniques, most can be climbed by a simple, if arduous, hike. Notable summits include Mount Elbert, Mount Massive, the Mount of the Holy Cross, and the Collegiate Peaks (Mounts Columbia, Harvard, Princeton, and Yale). The town of Leadville is located about 10 miles (16 km) east of the range, and Aspen 20 miles (32 km) to the west.
