Went up the Cable Route and down the Keyhole. I was expecting larger crowds for a Sunday, but overall, things went smoothly.

Bummer of a day. Crammed into the back of a volvo with my partner overnight for our early(ish) start. We were on the trail before 6 making good time and made it to the Boulder Field around 8. The forecast called for the rain to hold off until sometime between 12-3pm, with tstorms. This was not the case and the weather looked even worse over the other side of the keyhole for what would have been the rest of the route while the rain picked up to a decent drizzle. Blows my mind that a few people decided the climbing conditions up the scramble were good, even though the rocks were soaked and Thunderstorms were in the forecast a little later in the day. Mountain will be there next week.

A very windy morning cut the numbers of climbers and made for slow going. Got the mildest weather of the day on top, however. My 2nd ascent of this big peak.

Great hike/climb via Keyhole. Still a significant amount of snow. Used crampons for the entire climb past the Keyhole. Abut half of the hike from there was on bare rock. I wished several times that I didn't have the crampons on, and then would begin long sections of snow. Enjoyed the summit with one other person.

Very little snow or ice remained as of our climb; all of it was avoidable. Fun climb with friends Steve and Jason.

Fun route with Heath Hawsey, was Heath's first summit. We did it in a single day push which turned out to be a long day and getting caught in a snow storm up high while coming off summit.

Watched the sunrise from summit of Meeker before climbing Longs and being the first person to reach the summit on busy summer weekend. Descended Keyhole route passing hundreds of people on the way down.

Joe_ParvisLongs via Trough  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 17, 2010

Hiked up Glacier Gorge to just below Black Lake on Friday evening. Heavy packs and snowshoes. Despite snowshoes, still broke through in places because snow soft, especially around Mills Lake area. Temps about 30-32 F. Some pinwheels from previous sunny days at bottom of slopes.

Temps dropped some overnight with some firming of snow. On trail moving above Black Lake at about 530am. Overcast and again about 30F. Ascended Longs via Trough. Trough snow firm enough, especially when following some tracks from a few days ago. On top at 1020am in increasing snow. Snow continued on descent to Black Lake, but later sunny. Beneath about 12K snow became very wet with some crampon balling.

Hike out in rising temps (38F near parking) and more snowshoe postholing, but not too bad.

Lakes were acceptable to cross, but significant melting on top of the ice with slush and water in areas. Some areas near in and outflow were clear of ice. If crossing lakes be careful and on lookout.

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.

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.

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