Thanks to Kirk Mallory for adding this peak.

Crestone Peak and Crestone Needle were the last two fourteeners in Colorado to be climbed. The South Couloir route is the easiest route to climb, but reaching it requires a steep hike over Broken Hand Pass from South Colony Lakes or the difficult Cottonwood Creek approach from the west. The North Couloir is easier to approach but a much steeper and looser climb. The traverse between Crestone Peak and Crestone Needle is considered one of the four great fourteener ridge traverses in Colorado.
