CastillejaMiniataMonsoon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2010


I took the desolate Keplinger's Couloir route, which included a bushwhack from a sandy lake, crossing the creek of another alpine lake, and then heading straight up from the south. It was very much fun trying to find my way around the top, climbing around the rocks and ultimately determining that I'd climbed the couloir to the very top and that the shoot-off to the summit had been further below. At the summit the fog came in and I descended quickly, becoming battered by monsoons once I had gotten back to the treeline (phew!). Highly recommended route for the lovers of wilderness and haters of tourists. There was of course no snow in monsoon season.

Perfect weather, perfect snow. Everything was just perfect. Great camp at Black Lake. The approach was a bit slushy though.

cheetah262Weekend finale!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2010


After Elbert then Massive, Long's was the crowning jewel of the three trails. The weather was fantastic. Heading left instead of right, in the dark, at the crossroads gave me the un-asked for but added bonus of sunrise at Chasm Lake.

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".

Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2010


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.

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!
