We did this route on our way to Grand Teton. We avoided all the ice and snow by climbing up a crack that runs from the top of the ridge between the North Face and the Diamond; it seemed an obvious route. Check out the trip photos at http://www.intergate.com/~devendorf/LongsPeak-Jul'05/

Great hike/climb and not one step shared with anybody else-- no kidding. Okay, there were others sharing the trail up to and back from Boulder Field, but I had the Keyhole Route and the descent to myself because I went up from camp in the late afternoon and returned at sunset. This was the way to go, as I can't imagine my frustration sharing the Trough and Homestretch with slow and/or inept climbers. When I got back to the parking lot, I checked the register and found that about 300 people were out on the mountain that morning-- definitely not for me.

Third time's a charm! My husband and I picked the right day to climb this year; the weather was perfect! We started at 1:15 a.m. and got to watch the sunrise from the Keyhole - awesome! We met some great people at the top! We watched a lot of them pass us by on the way down, but it didn't hurt the ego too badly!

Drove to Longs Campground from Rapid City, SD(393 miles). I setup tent & slept for 3 hours before heading out at 5:15AM. I summited @ 11:40AM - Stayed up top for an hour or more - was back in Longs Campground @6:00PM. Maybe need to get more sleep before doing this I know I can get up and down faster than this(I did enjoy the hike, wasn't out to set record, took it all in). However I don't know how people can claim to leave at 5:15AM or later in log and claim summit in in little over 3 hours when I saw only one couple pass me going up and pass me again coming down from the trough. Oh well - Next up Gray's and Torreys Peak. Kind of a busy week hiked up Harney Peak, SD - Thursday evening roundtrip 2hrs 45min, Sunday biked from Deadwood to Hill City, approximately 52 miles with two low tires and no pump, oops.

Cloudy skies early in the morning had me concerned, but all turned out well. Conditions were ideal, not too hot and not too cold.

Finally got 'er done! Climbed with compadre Andy. We did not get to train as hard as we should have for this climb and we paid for it! I admit I was nervous in a few places. But weather was perfect so we kept on slogging 10-15 feet at a time until we finally made the summit. Hiking back took almost as long as going up, but it's done and now we can look forward to new challenges!

Finally summited this mountain. I've been worried about this mountain for a while because I tend not to do well on extremely long hikes. My first attempt ended because I was too exhausted to continue. This time we made it just fine in 11 hours RT. My 39th fourteener.

Had a great weather day, and better physical conditioning this year, Made it to the summit in 4hrs 15 mins. The hole day took only 9hrs, vs. 11 hours last year. My next goal is to go up the Loft route and do Mt. Meeker, and hopefully I won't have to contend with the two hundred other people along the route, that I delt with this year.
