KimoBKeyhole  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2009

It was a long hike to the Keyhole. The wind was howling through the Keyhole like a freight train. Many hikers were turning around in the Boulderfield. I stepped through the Keyhole and everything changed. Calm - still - quiet. The route is a blast. Long's is an unforgettable mountain - I look forward to attempting different routes over time.

I hiked up Longs Peak in September of 1998 via the Keyhole Route. This was my second attempt, being turned back by very high winds in September of 1997.

Did the keyhole route with a group from the climbing gym in Co. Springs. First time on summer ice. Felt like CRAP at the summit and had to run part of way down because of afternoon lightning.

Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2007

Began climbing from the trailhead at 0230 hrs in the rain (I know, not recommended, but had a firm plan to bail if weather did not improve), most importantly by the time we reached The Keyhole and to check the weather coming from the west. Man, looking down at Glacier Gorge will wake you up in the morning. Gives you a perspective of what your up against. Longs Peak has taken many, but fortunately we were not on the list that day. For our full story see my TR.......Longs Peak-Running Down a Dream.

Longs peak via Kieners route was thrilling, fun, and memorable. A great peak worthy of the fame it recieves.

Sprinting up the Keyhole route from Ft Collins, here is where I learned the joys of altitude sickness. Hardly saw anyone all day.

Tons of fun, what a great summit! Large enough to escape to somewhere quiet even when crowded. My first time at RMNP, can't wait to get back to hit more peaks!

Over 14 hours of hiking! What a great day : ) Would have been shorter if the "short cut" had worked out! At least I didn't die..... and, thankfully there were no thunderstorms.

Nice route -- no crowds until the home stretch, and none of those ugly red and yellow targets on the rocks. Perfect weather.

Now I know why they call it "Long's" Peak, since the climb is so d&%# long.

Climbed via the Keyhole route...very beautiful but extremely crowded.

Outstanding sunrise on the face of the diamond.

Hiked with Steve Dush to the Keyhole and then I summited by about 10:00 after a 4:00 am start. Lots of people on the way up and on the way down, but I shared the summit with only one other person - probably because a snow storm had started in earnest right before I topped out. I reached the top of the "Homestretch" as a mob of hikers was coming off of the summit plateau and they were warning everyone else coming up to turn around. I was too close to give up on it. Got back to the car at 1:30 after a rather treacherous (slippery) descent.

I was glad to have done it on a weekday. The weather blew, but it was worth it.

Parked the car at 3:30. There were already 100s of cars in lot and along the road. When we made it above treeline you could see a line of headlamps snaking up the mountain. I've never seen so many people on a mountain before. My brother and I made summit at 8:45 and were back to the car four hours later.

Meetup.com hike. I had 6 people sign up, but only one other person showed up. We started at 3:15AM, summited at 9:45, took a nap at the summit, and got back to the trailhead at 4:15. We hit the jackpot with the weather. It was sunny and warm for most of the day, and it was dead calm on the summit! We did get some light rain, with distant thunder when we got down below the Chasm Lake junction, but that soon passed and the sun returned when we got back to the trailhead. It was a long, hard day. I got a mild case of altitude sickness on top, but I had a great time. Lots of interesting rock formations and banded rocks.
