Kapelmuurvia Keyhole, and nearly False Keyhole...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 12, 2010


First time up Longs. Mostly overcast day but forecasted gusting winds never materialized and it was surprisingly still at the summit. Zoning out on the descent I was drawn, as if by Sirens Song, to the precipice of the False Keyhole. Later viewing it from the Boulder Field whence I regained the route, I was happy to have followed the advice of the weathered sign "do not descend the False Keyhole".

Climbed the keyhole route with my friend Jake. Topped out around 8:00am. I thought the exposure was fine but the capstone at the top of the Trough was a little tricky.

Great route on an incredible face! Unfortuantely, we were stuck behind a party of two and a party of three... slow going. Waiting about an hour at each belay. Decided to bail after four pitches.

Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2010


Made the summit at 7:39 AM. Great day. Shared the mountain with some great folks on that day. To the hiker that turned in my ipod shuffle to the Longs Peak Rangers on the 13th of August: You are an amazing individual! You are an inspiration to us all! Thank-you! Thank-you!

Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2010
Made it to the benckmark (13750') at the top of the Trough. Conditions were good and people were summiting - members of my party were a drag, hence my decision. See my detailed story with photos: http://hubpages.com/hub/Climbing-Longs-Peak-A-Personal-Narrative

Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2010


Classic long day on Longs. Route finding makes this route more interesting and the amount of climbing/scrambling is twice that of the Keyhole. Weather was moving in as we decended. Great day.

Went up the Cable Route and down the Keyhole. I was expecting larger crowds for a Sunday, but overall, things went smoothly.

Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2010


Bummer of a day. Crammed into the back of a volvo with my partner overnight for our early(ish) start. We were on the trail before 6 making good time and made it to the Boulder Field around 8. The forecast called for the rain to hold off until sometime between 12-3pm, with tstorms. This was not the case and the weather looked even worse over the other side of the keyhole for what would have been the rest of the route while the rain picked up to a decent drizzle. Blows my mind that a few people decided the climbing conditions up the scramble were good, even though the rocks were soaked and Thunderstorms were in the forecast a little later in the day. Mountain will be there next week.

cftbqKeyhole on a windy day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2010


A very windy morning cut the numbers of climbers and made for slow going. Got the mildest weather of the day on top, however. My 2nd ascent of this big peak.

BLongJune Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 6, 2010


Great hike/climb via Keyhole. Still a significant amount of snow. Used crampons for the entire climb past the Keyhole. Abut half of the hike from there was on bare rock. I wished several times that I didn't have the crampons on, and then would begin long sections of snow. Enjoyed the summit with one other person.

Very little snow or ice remained as of our climb; all of it was avoidable. Fun climb with friends Steve and Jason.
