Did the cables on a whim back in my hippie days while working a summer job in Colorado. Tennis shoes, boy scout canteen and all; boy was I stupid but lucky.

Just a beautiful day! Climbed this up in 4 1/2 hours, down in three. Most enjoyable mountain.

Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2008


My first Fourteener and my longest day on the trail. We were hiking for over fourteen hours and I've done 20 mile hikes in less than half that time. We took the Keyhole route and really had a good time of it. I hadn't realized how exposed the Homestretch is and it pushed the limits of fun, but it was a good challenge. Seeing the sun come up right between the Twin Sisters and turn the East Face rosy red for five minutes was worth the 3:45 wake up. With this under my belt, I'd like to move on to some more challenging peaks. Good luck to all of you in future summits.

ThomasOldeHeuveltA special memory  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 14, 1997


Longs Peak is a special mountain to me. My father had climbed it in 1980. He died 3 years after I was born. Coming from the Netherlands, my sister and I climbed it when I was 14 on a beautiful summer's day. My mom was really proud. For years and years Longs has remained my altitude record, until this summer I climbed the magnificent Dent Blanche in the Swiss Alps, which is 12 meters higher. That was a feeling no one can describe.

Began at the ranger station at 2am, hiked up to the Keyhole, waited in the freezing hut for some light, then made my way up to the summit, arrived there 7:15. Took an hour long nap on the summit, descended and got back to the TH at 12:20, almost a 10.5 hour day. Boy am I tired!

Scooted up the keyhole with Brian T. in 4.25 hrs. Planning on a new personal speed record but a windy morning slowed that down. Turned out to be a great day despite the breezy morning. Congrats BT on first Longs summit!

This was my second time on the summit. I went up the Loft Route, and down the North Face. I actually found Clark's Arrow.

Went for a speed attempt on Longs to see how hard I could push myself. 3:45 RT on another busy Saturday. Conditions are good up there, dry and snow free.

mountainzen107Fast and Light  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2008


This was my 7th 14er, done in 7 hrs and 15 minutes. By far the most beautiful/technical/exposed mountain thus far. I was prepared physically and mentally, but completely shocked at its difficulty. Being the "cattle route" i presumed that it would be a rather long version of grays or bierstadt. NOPE! i cannot believe how more people don't die up there. I saw 10 year olds, 60 year olds, and everything inbetween. I would have to say 90 percent looked inexperienced. anyway it was gorgeous and i loved the exposure on the narrows. -and also people's expressions on the narrows as they cling on the wall with their life as i skip by like a mountain goat.

5th time on the summit, first round trip of the Keyhole route. Matt and I took a quick midweek jaunt up and down, 5:25 RT. The route is completely snow free, though there is a little water on the Homestretch and in the Trough from snow melt/rain fall.

Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2006


26 years after listening to my brother tell me about his climb up Long's I finally made it to the summit. My attempt in 2005 ended at the Keyhole due to bad weather. For this attempt in 2006 the weather was perfect. Hoping for success again this August.

Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2004


Woke up shortly after 3am and started the approach from the parking lot. Pretty easy going, up until the keyhole. Got to the summit at around 10am, saw some clouds, but didn't look like anything was going to happen. Boy, was I wrong. It started pouring shortly after I passed the keyhole on the way back. Very scary lighting strikes all around.

Solo climb of the Keyhole. The route is still "technical" and ice axe and crampons were definitely needed. Descended to Clark's Arrow and traversed to Meeker then down the Iron Gates. Had Longs all to myself this day!

Great summit from any route. Might have done this mountain about 20 times and from all sides.

forgot to sign in from last summer. Climbed too slowly and spent the night on a ledge. Beautiful weather.

This mountain lives up to its reputation. I can't wait to try the North Face and Kieners...

I got seriously pumped up for this one, hit great weather, and summited via the Trough-Narrows-Homestretch in 6 hours from Glacier Gorge solo.
