  • Little Bear Peak is a Colorado 14er in the Sangre de Cristo Range.
  • Little Bear is just southwest of Blanca Peak, one of the highest and most topographically prominent of the Colorado fourteeners.
  • While Little Bear itself has little more than the minimum 300 feet of prominence to qualify as a separate peak, it is notable for being one of the most technically difficult and dangerous of the fourteeners to climb; its standard route is known for being exposed to rockfall.
  • The connecting ridge to Blanca Peak is one of the four great Colorado 14er traverses.
