Geocache Description:

Colorado 14ers series.

Name: El Diente Peak

Elevation: 14,159

Range: San Juan Mountains

Rank in Range (without 300 foot prominence rule): 3

As described by Wikipedia: “The importance of fourteeners is greatest in Colorado, which has the majority of such peaks in North America.” With that in mind, here is a series to celebrate the mountains we call “14ers.”

The “Honorable Mention” part of the 14ers series is directed towards 5 peaks that, while not meeting the 300 foot prominence rule, are central to true Colorado mountaineering. They are either noted as named peaks on USGS Quads, popular in photographs, present a serious challenge to summit, or are made up of a combination of these characteristics.

Please take time to enjoy the views and interesting locations that some of these caches bring you to.

Be sure to bring your own writing tool for each hide, please respect all cache areas, and replace everything just as you found it.

Have fun and good luck!
