Technical climb of the Keyhole Ridge to the summit of Longs. Down via standard route. Fun alpine ridge climb, beautiful weather, magnificent views from the ridge.

blueshadeLongs Peak - Keyhole  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2011


Longs Peak via the Keyhole. Cruised up to the Keyhole in about 2.5, a little slower going after that avoiding a little snow and since it was my first 14er of the year. Mostly easy Class 3 above the Keyhole, will be easier once it dries out more. Car to car in a little over 8 hours, including an hour on top. Mellow, pretty boring hike below the Keyhole.

rodeonexisAll to myself!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2011


I was shooting for a 4am start, but finally got my act together and was on the trail by 5. The trail was quiet on my ascent: ran into a total of 6 hikers/climbers. After the keyhole, had everything to myself. Leading up to the Trough was real slick, and the Trough itself was frozen sunbaked snow at 8am. the climb wasn't bad, but the narrows were iced over and sketchy. By the time I made it to the homestretch, things had softened up. Aside from an ice crux at the bottom, it was straight forward. 5 hours up, 3.5 down. REMEMBER to bring ice Axe and crampons!

Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2011


Highlights: 5 am was to late to start. Broadway ledges were covered in wet snow and very sketchy. The crux cracks were wet and full of water ice and slush. Lightning was prevalent all around us. However, it cleared up around the summit. This route is superb if you can catch it in good conditions and even better weather. Cheers! 15 hours in bad conditions/weather.

jrhosWinter Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 27, 2011


Started at Glacier Gorge - camped at bottom of hill below Black Lake (too windy up higher). 6 of us in group - 2 made it to the top. Snowed all day with lots of wind on the ascent - could not see our footprints in the trough on the way back down. Very little snow on the narrows (just when we wanted to quit). Extreme wind on the summit meant no time for pictures, just had to get back down. Some wind/frostbite on my face as a result (battle scar). Lost a lot of weight that day - not always "fun" but definitely an epic climb. Would love to do the Keplinger route with someone some day.

Had to turn around early on due to really windy conditions. a couple of guys in my group made it to the keyhole but windy conditions kept them from continuing as well

This is an enjoyable climb via the same route that John Wesley Powell's party logged the first offical ascent in 1868. Much less travelled than the standard Keyhole route. Camped at Sandbeach Lake. Awesome, beautiful scenery abounds!

Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2002


Today I'm browsing pics and looking back nearly nine years at the day I climbed Longs Peak (keyhole route). What an experience! I hope to do it again this year - I'm pretty fit for 50, but I know the window of opportunity is closing. Anyone who's summited can attest that you see very few 'old' people at the top!
