technicolorNHVia the standard Keyhole route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2014


Started at 440 AM and summited at ten minutes past 10 AM. I was extremely glad they had privies on the way as my guts seemed to be most unhappy with my culinary selection from the night before. After twenty minutes on the summit I finished the descent at 310 PM for a ten and a half hour day. Brett and Torn from Texas caught up to me within a half mile of the parking lot. The summit area had a lot of room to spread out on.

OnagerLongs Peak Via Keyhole  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2014


Starting at 2AM from the Ranger Station trailhead at 9,500', I met up with another climber and we hit the East Longs Peak trail. After reaching treeline at 11,000' we continued to the boulder field at 13,000' in the dark. We reached the Keyhole route just as the sunrise came, and we clambered onto the route. We carefully navigated the class 2 and 3 terrain towards the Trough, a 600 foot gully filled with loose rock. We made it to the top of the Trough, then began navigating our way across the Narrows, a class 3+ cliff walk with a sharp drop of of over 1,000 ft. on one side. We eventually made it to the Homestretch, a long smooth rock scramble that spills your out onto the football field sized summit. After making the summit of Longs Peak (14,259') at 7AM and spending about 30 minutes on the summit, we made our way back down the way we came up. We reached the end of the Keyhole route around 9AM and made it back to the trailhead around 1PM. A fun and classic mountaineering route.

I had such a blast on the keyhole route. Such a cool experience and I want to do other challenging ones like it. Perfect weather. 14'er #12. It felt like a death march on the way back to the car.

one of the best, if not the best, colorado 14ers. Keyhole route is a blast to climb, fun class three scrambling. Wouldn't mind climbing the peak again

Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2010


My fifth Colorado 14'er. Climbed via the Keyhole Route. A true "Rocky Mountain High" experience. Five hours later (after summiting) back at the rented cabin in Estes Park, I grabbed a couple of chilled Busch beers and "headed for the mountains" once again.
