These 10 classic peaks in the Elk Range to the west of Aspen, Colorado are revered among mountain lovers. 7 are above 14,000 ft elevation, including some of the most difficult 14ers in Colorado. Beware of loose rock on the Bells & Pyramid! Not for novices. Completing this challenge is a great achievement... just be sure to save some extra money to celebrate afterward in the upscale "mining" town of Aspen.
