I'm planning on coming down to the front range this weekend and looking to do a 14er or two. Would love to have a partner in case a belay is necessary for the climb. Pretty flexible on locations and times because I live in the Black Hills and just down for a couple days to climb. I come down every couple weeks if there's a chance another time works better. Thanks
None of the 14ers in the Front Range or the Mosquito Range need a rope for their standard routes. If you want to do a non-standard route, some of them may need a rope, but even then many routes are still at most 4th class.
You'll definitely want trekking poles and microspikes though. You may never need them, or you could be post-holing through snow depending on the weather and selected route.
