Date Climbed: Jun 26, 2014


climbed with steve, lovely route! much more snow and ice than expected high on the route took more time than we imagined. the diamond step is incredible, though nowhere near as exposed as i hoped! lots of running water on the north face rappels drenched us and the ropes. sixth longs summit

good fun all around!

Simuled after climbing Stettner's Ledges on the Lower E. Face. Simul climbing is fun.

Loved the route - Bivy sites are plentiful, and route finding is exceptionally easy. Came down the east slopes and the trail took us straight to a cairn that had the rap anchors. Fun.

After doing Skywalker on Arapahoe the day before and then drinking entirely too much we got a late start. Made it to Broadway and the traverse in sickeningly sluchy snow with ice underneath. Started hailing on tech poortion and we lost visibility from there. Ran down the NEVERENDING FLAT switchbacks on Keyhole with lightning overhead. Huge satisfying day.

The best overall climbing route I've done. Felt sick heading up Lambs Slide, but quickly recovered once the sun hit me. Very glad I didn't turn back! Broadway didn't seem so bad, especially since it was dry. With Kiefer and Anton.

Great climb! We found the route finding easy.The lamb slide was very icey, and I'm glad to have had Ice tools. Classic for sure!

I consider this route one of the most fun, exposed, but doable routes I have climbed in over 10 yrs. mountaineering. Right on the edge of the diamond, with some technical mountaineering and some snow/ice thrown in at 14k, it was a blast. Highly recommended.

This route is THE premier route in Colorado!! Everything about it rocks!! Prolly the best mountain route I've EVER climbed!!

However, I thought Broadway was tame.

Fantastic Route, I guess we got a bit off route on the top, no scree but an interesting dihedral. 4 1/2 hours up, 3 1/2 hours down. Highly recommended!!

This is one of the best alpine routes in Colorado. The climbing is straight forward and easy enough but the exposure and the positions are amazing. Once you're off the Keyhole route, Long's never ceases to amaze.

Mountain Jim

I guess the mountain gods were smiling on us that day. Neither Ken Paine or I had ever climbed Longs before, and it was one of our first alpine routes. Ignorance is bliss.

What a fantastic route! Had we been a little better at route finding above Broadway and a little faster, we would've avoided the overnight bivy on the North Face descent. NO REGRETS though! Climbed with Stephanie Revennaugh. The best classic I have been on in CO. thus far. DO IT!

Very enjoyable route with a little bit of everything. Climbed it on a perfect day with Smudge. This is one route I will never get tired of.
