Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2005


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.

Awesome hike, got an early start on a weekday, and beat the crowds on the way up. Dedicated to my late friend and coworker Melanie. Threw out a few m+m's for her on the summit.

TMheavenly place  Sucess!


I love Long's, and the cirque around chasm lake. Heavy!! Have enjoyed climbing on the Diamond, skiing the Trough, and camping in the boulderfield on the way to hiking the Keyhole. A special place.
