lindasyhA Long Haul  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 26, 1997


It took us 13 hours but we made it up (and down!) safely. Not as scary as I had imagined. Even the narrows didn't seem as bad as I had been lead to believe.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2006


Got lucky with the weather and was able to do it in 10 hours. Homestretch was still a bit icy which made for a tricky descent. My first 14er. Did it solo, but there were lots of people on the mountain.

zenalpinistClimbed Long's way too many times...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 3, 2006


What was this...number 27 or 28? Bah, can't remember right now. Been up here multiple time up keyhole, trough, lamb's slide, clarks arrow, kieners, keyhole ridge, etc. Not bad ass enough for Diamond...yet.

This day we kick-stepped up the snow of the trough from Black Lake. Don't know why we didn't bring skis...would've been perfect for the way down.

Who will be with me for top-out #30? A mystery yet unrevealed....stay tuned!

One day ascent from trailhead. Climbed the Keyhole in icy conditions, descended the Cables Route in a blizzard.

Climbed the loft route, descended through the Keyhole. Loft was fun but the conga line on the Keyhole was tedious.

Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2006


We climbed the Trough from Glacier Gorge TH. Great day - good weather - Had to work our way past the water fall that has formed - The Trough holds some snow up to the point when the Trough and Keyhole route connect.

First "tough" 14er with my wife. Good weather 'til the summit when low clouds obscured the views. All in all, it seemed pretty easy.

Via Red Wall. Great climb, but didnt get off the wall till 9 at night. Best night sky I have ever seen. The vary large leader fall just added to the epic. Cheers

downbootiesThe Keyhole  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2003


I don't remember the exact date because I was on a roadtrip. Started around 0200 after catching a few hours of sleep in my chevy metro. Passed a friendly guy from NM on the way up. When I got to the Boulderfield, the campers there looked sad because it was too stormy to summit that day. Being a stubborn Alaskan, I pushed on and it was a little sketchy in some areas without my axe and crampons. I had to jam body parts in icy cracks to move up and down in some places and there was one area where ice crystals blew in my eyes. It made for good memories, but the summit was too stormy to see any views, which is unfortuate. Around my return to the keyhole, I met the NM guy again. I think he was worried about my safety so I walked down with him.

I climbed the Trough from Glacier Gorge TH. Great weather held until late in the descent - I had a calm and sunny summit all to myself!

My bud Scott and I hauled all of our climbing crap up to do Keyhole Ridge to find out that all the access ramps were covered in new snow, still managed to eke out the normal route though

AspenRoute Climbed: Keyhole -- with BLOOD in my urine!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 1999


My team and I set out from the University of Denver to take Longs Peak. I didn't know I was on the verge of being severely dehydrated. So after high-altitude hiking onward and dodging rock spiders on the boulderfield I felt the need to relieve myself and when I did...OMG...my urine was blood red. I drank as much as I could and continued onward to the summit. Fortunately, I didn't have a kidney infection and the clear yellow urine returned 24 hours later :D Wooo Hoooooooo! I'd never hike again without properly hydrated! :)

Would be much better without the people. The 2 others in my party turned around at the boulder field. Barely missed sunrise on the peak beause we could not sleep in the car in the parking lot. Started way too early, or should I say late.
