altitude14erEast Slopes via Longs Peak Trailhead  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 26, 2005


An uneventful day with hard packed snow that didn't require snowshoes. The summit was freezing and offers an amazing view of Longs Peak East Face.

Total inversion that day had clouds down over the front range cities that crept up to us on the mountain. Never seen anything like it before or since.

Date Climbed: Jul 6, 1991


I went up the North Long's Peak Trail to meet a group that was traversing Meeker, Longs, Storm, and Half Mountain. Before the group arrived at the keyhole I climbed Mt. Lady Washington. After we met up at the Keyhole we climbed Storm Peak and bushwhacked down the north ridge of Half Mountain in the dark. We came out on the North Long's Peak trail just above the Galacier Knobs. I've been there twice since then...once at sunrise. Mt. Lady Washington has the best seat in the house for a dynamic view of the Diamond on Longs Peak.

This was an incidental summit on my way to the Boulderfield of Longs. Heavy snow and high winds were present for the climb and ultimately ended my crampon aided bid for Longs via the North Face (Cables) Route as well as teh Keyhole route. Deep late-season snow was present starting at the trailhead. Snowshoes were essential on the descent.

Nice winter outing with SP'er Brad Snider. Partly sunny, ~31 deg F at TH and 20 deg F at summit. Trail from Longs Peak TH packed snow in trees and blown off up high. High winds (G60+) on summit, but much lighter on lee (east) slopes.

Great hike with my friends Bear and Zhenia! So windy at the top that we had to crawl!

Fun summit day with Joe Parvis. Very high winds on summit; had to lay down and reach out to touch summit so we wouldn't blow away! Awesome views of the Diamond and the Prow.

Climbed with gurlyclimber yesterday on a surprising calm, but still cold, winter day! Great views of the Diamond.

A perfect winter day with lots of sun and minimal wind. I couldn't believe how calm the weather was on the way up. Out of all of my trips up longs and in that area in general, I have only had 2 days without interesting weather and yesterday was one of them. Climbed with chicagotransplant and some other people not on summitpost. Fun day!

heather14Route Climbed: North East Face Date Climbed: November 13, 2005  Sucess!


It was an incredibly windy, snowy, blustery day! I don't think I stood completely up the whole way and or back down. I think I reached the top...it flattened out, so I'm assuming it was the top. You couldn't see more than 20yds around you. I'll have to do it again to see the views I hear about.

This was my first my first 13er. It was a fun boulder hop to the summit and one of the most amazing views I've ever seen. The diamond is spectacular and we could see climbers on the face, about 1000 feet below the summit. Great views of the Keyhole & Meeker too.

Climbed this after Longs as the weather held from the boulderfield. Incredible views of the Diamond. Descended the opposite side to the Chasm lake junction. This is a tedious boulder hop.

Was intending to only go to the keyhole, but met up with two other hikers (Jeff and John) who were heading over to Lady Washington and joined up with them to climb to the peak. Great views all around.
