Mount Richthofen, at 12,940 feet, is the highest mountain in the Never Summer Mountains of Colorado. Richthofen rises at the northwestern corner of Rocky Mountain National Park. It was named for a German scientist, Baron Ferdinand von Richthofen, apparently by Clarence King's 1870 survey team.
The mountain is a steep Class 3 climb. Needles and Grenadiers explorerer William S. Cooper climbed Mount Richthofen by himself in 1908 in what is presumed to be the first ascent. No sign of previous climbers were present at that time.
