Great winter climb up Longs Peak with Brad Snider. Perfect weather, beautiful views, exhausting and challenging climb, and a sunset summit.

Georg (SP member georgbetsy) and I made a weekend of this. Bush-whacking to Longs Peak in the winter is certainly the way to avoid crowds! Awesome weather, a challenging climb, great views and summitting at sunset made for an unforgettable trip.

My Brother Mike and I did this early in the season and I was surprised how sketchy some sections were especially with ice and snow on the trail. One mistep and it would take the rest of your life to reach the bottom!

It was a great climb, a lot of people there.

Some people "lost" on the mountain , probably expecting something a little easier than it actually is.

I did not take enough water with me and was left with no water for most of the way...not smart.

The route winds up the mountain, and it is really gentle.

Ahhh...the days of youth and stupidity. Three buddies from Kansas, myself being one, climbed this (our first real mountain) with only two quarts of liquid, peanut butter and crackers, and yet stll came home safe and alive, with the climbing bug now firmly entrenched in our blood.

This was my first class 3. What a great hike. It made for a long day trip though.

What a great mountain, but way too many people! I was in the best shape of my life when I climbed this one, car-to-car in 6.5 hours. This was the first time my hair ever stood on end. I'll never forget it. One day I would like to watch the sunrise over the front range from Longs.

Started the day before and hiked up to the boulderfield to camp for the night. The next morning, we left around 6:30am and traversed the boulderfield to the keyhole, then the bullseye route the rest of the way. The only spot we bogged down was in the Trough, which took most of the time.

The route was awesome - the Narrows was cool and the Homestretch was a nice way to reach the summit. Even though this was a weekday, there was still about 20-30 people at the summit. From our campsite, we did the round trip in about 4.5 hours.

Beautiful climb on a nice day. Being my first 14er, the route was surprisingly difficult, but it was all worth it. I was ready to do it again the next day. I didn't like the crowds, though.

Started from Glacier Gorge TH, then ascended the stadard Key Hole Route, with the exception that in the Trough I stayed on the slabs and cracks on climbers left which allowed much more solid and sustained Class 3, highly recommended. Then descended the Trough all the way to Glacier Gorge.

I was very happy to go up the Loft - no people and fun route. Keyhole on the way down was a zoo... Real nice to link up the routes. Started 4am, summited 8.30.

2nd time i have summitted, and just like last time i told myself that i need not ever go again. LOL. I am seriously considering going back next week with my little brother (its only been 3 weeks since). It is that kind of experience. It makes an impression on your soul.

Two different hikes one to the keyhole and one after the keyhole. First time hiking with exposure and my mind was a mess. Made it up and I was very proud of myself. Outstanding climb.

Still one of my favorite mountains, except for the crowds.

What a day. Middle of july and climbing in crampons. Sleet on the descent, wet rock all around. Still my favorite mountain.
