Had to turn around early on due to really windy conditions. a couple of guys in my group made it to the keyhole but windy conditions kept them from continuing as well

Used the Keyhole route. Super snowy in March 2007.

This is an enjoyable climb via the same route that John Wesley Powell's party logged the first offical ascent in 1868. Much less travelled than the standard Keyhole route. Camped at Sandbeach Lake. Awesome, beautiful scenery abounds!

Today I'm browsing pics and looking back nearly nine years at the day I climbed Longs Peak (keyhole route). What an experience! I hope to do it again this year - I'm pretty fit for 50, but I know the window of opportunity is closing. Anyone who's summited can attest that you see very few 'old' people at the top!

I took the desolate Keplinger's Couloir route, which included a bushwhack from a sandy lake, crossing the creek of another alpine lake, and then heading straight up from the south. It was very much fun trying to find my way around the top, climbing around the rocks and ultimately determining that I'd climbed the couloir to the very top and that the shoot-off to the summit had been further below. At the summit the fog came in and I descended quickly, becoming battered by monsoons once I had gotten back to the treeline (phew!). Highly recommended route for the lovers of wilderness and haters of tourists. There was of course no snow in monsoon season.

Perfect weather, perfect snow. Everything was just perfect. Great camp at Black Lake. The approach was a bit slushy though.

After Elbert then Massive, Long's was the crowning jewel of the three trails. The weather was fantastic. Heading left instead of right, in the dark, at the crossroads gave me the un-asked for but added bonus of sunrise at Chasm Lake.
