DescriptionCoxcomb Peak is ranked #171 among Roach's bicentennial Colorado peaks, if you're into those kind of lists. This mountain occupies a spectacular setting, overlooking the the West and Middle Forks of the Cimarron River to the north and the Wetterhorn Basin to the south.
Although it appears fairly blocky and flat from afar, the summit ridge actually forms a knife-edge, with significant exposure. The first ascent, up the Southwest Chimney, went up in 1929. A route up the north face from 1969 is reported as well.
The peak is described by Rosebrough (1986) and Jacobs and Ormes (2000), and a Summitpost page is also available.
