Took the Smith/Morehouse Trail to about 10360' and then bushwhacked to the meadow between Long and E Long. Climbed E Long and then did the ridge to Long, 11327, 11340, 11258, down to Hells Kitchen Pass at 10803, up to Hells Kitchen Peak (11058), then back to the pass, then bushwhacked to just S of Jean Lake and then on to 10534 which is west of Jean Lake and then followed the ridge west, north, and then northwestish to get back to the trail. Whew!
west ridge route from Long Mtn Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2010
hiked this one together with Long Mountain with my niece Chelsea and her husband Brandon during a family backpacking trip to Island Lake. My trip got cut short the next day when my daughter took a bad fall scrambling down a steep mountain slope near camp.
