Jennifer Roach

Mountaineer & Thru-Hiker

Jennifer Roach has had a lifelong attraction to outdoor life. She completed climbing Colorado's fourteeners in 1986, and in 2001 became only the fourth woman to summit every thirteener in Colorado. Somehow, she still finds time for extensive long-distance thru-hiking and the occasional ultramarathon. With her husband, Gerry, she has co-authored two guidebooks, Colorado’s Thirteeners – From Hikes to Climbs and Colorado’s Lost Creek Wilderness – Classic Summit Hikes. You can read her full bio here.
