djkestFirst One  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2009


After training for 2 months, we were successful on our FIRST 14er attempt ever. Longs Peak is still my favorite 14er. Ascent took less than 5 hours, but I hope to improve on my time.

I kept putting Longs away because they don't allow dogs in the national park. I wanted so much for duchess to summit with me.
Up beaver (after summiting meeker), and down via old cables. Lovely day, tons of people on the summit.

10.5 hours. 230am start from a crowded parking lot. Good weather today, and lots of folks on the trail, plus a meteor shower made for a busy day.

Training hike for CMC trip to Mount Elbrus in August. This was my second time on Longs. We started after 3AM, reached the summit before 11 and got back around 4-4:30. We split into 2 groups (fast and slow) at the Keyhole, we met the slower group on the Homestretch as we left the summit. When I climbed Longs in 2009, I felt nauseous on the summit, but this time I felt fine. The weather was almost perfect, mostly sunny and not very windy, though it rained on us on the way back, and there was a cloud hanging directly over the summit, which cooled things down a bit. It was a long, successful day: everyone reached the top and made it back safely.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2012


1st 14er with my whole family. Kids did great. This hike took me and my wife to our limit. Was really worried I would have to get help for her. With the help of our middle son (thanks fro taking mom's pack Paul) she made it back to the Keyhole. From there all down hill. (But had lighting, thunder, hail, and then rain all the way back. It was AWESOME. We will never forget it!!!! St 1:09am, Keyhole 7:00am Summit 9:00am Truck 3:25pm

Pretty sketchy near the top with ice and snow on the route. 14er #1 this year.

MissHKeyhole Route not so bad :)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2012


Beautiful clear but WINDY day led me to be even more careful in scrambling. Snow patch along right side of trough is completely avoidable. Watch out for ice in Homestretch (still!) as well as the silppery rock from the melting ice. Started at 3am, back to trailhead by 4:45 pm with ample rest breaks. Route not as challenging as expected based on trip reports.

Summited via Notch Couloir. WHEW! What a route. We literally had the entire mountain to ourselves. Saw no one all day. About a 15 hour day. Also got SE Longs as well. Some sketch downclimbing down the Loft towards the end.

Nice late summer day. Saw no people all morning until I hit the homestretch on Longs. Descended via Keyhole. Repeated route once since.

Elspeth and I camped @ Jim's grove (this is '87) the first night and saddled up at 7:00 the next morning, summited at 11:45. It started snowing descending the homestretch and there was about a foot by the boulder field. Picked up camp & back to the car at 7:00

Took my 17 year old son up Long's via the keyhole. This was his first time in the mountains and he quite enjoyed it. Left the rangers station at 3:30, made the summit at 8:00 am. Beautiful weather and views. Had a snack and spent about 30 minutes on top. Back at the car by noon.

Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2011


Climbed Longs on probably the most beautifil day of the year. An amazing experience. Started from Ranger Station @ 3:00 a.m. and summited by 9:00. Climbed with a group of myself and 4 friends and met lots of neat people on the trail. Thanks Longs Peak for a day I will never forget!!

mikekadowStd. Keyhole Route  Sucess!


Left TH at 4am, summitted at 9 with a handful of others. Ran into dozens of people on the way down and thankful for the early start. Also thankful we ascended in the dark as the walk out was rather boring. Still though, this peak has many different aspects that I feel make it one of CO's favorite 14er.

Spent three nights in the boulder field and went for the summit on Sunday, just before a white-out storm Monday morning on the climb down. Great climb though!

Climbed the standard route with Dustin Kelley and Eric Holle. Lot of people on the mountain, but an interesting climb. Weather started to get bad at the end.

Epic day on Keiners, one of the best routes I have EVER done. Did not see anyone else on the entire mountain other than a couple camped below the Keyhole. Crazy, and we thought it would be crowded!
