Fun day. Was a bit windy and cold but pretty mild for what Longs is capable of dishing out in the winter. 10 hours car to car.

Very beautiful free solo climb with some ice and snow so crampons were necessary. After the crux it was nice and easy climbing.

Came up beaver and descended old cables. We did one rap on the descent, otherwise downclimbed. Felt much easier than 5.4.

A far preferable route to the Keyhole. Way shorter, more direct, and more fun! We brought a rack just in case we wanted to protect the route, but it was dry so we soloed it in rock shoes. I wish the technical section was longer.

We were trying to climb Stettners Ledges, but ended up changing routes after a lot of rockfall (including some medium impacts) scared us off.

Been meaning to climb this for a while. I was a bit disappointed. Decent scrambling above the technical stuff. Quick route to the summit.

This route is ok. Perhaps it's much better in the winter. We carried a light rack and a rope for the technical pitch. It was quite wet, so I'm not sure I would've wanted to free it. Lot's of loose rocks scrambling to the summit from the cables section.

Guess I'm not great at judging distance....I was expecting the technical pitch to be longer. A great climb none the less. I was suprised at the lack of snow on the N. Face right now, but what snow was there was mixed hard and sugar. It was interesting climbing the rock on the crux with crampons.

Ted EliasonWay more direct  Sucess!

I will probably never do the keyhole route in summer again. This route is not that exosed and way more direct.

Awesome climb! crux pitch was very enjoyable. Was a little hairy towards the top when we ran into some stretches of sugar snow and couldnt gain any purchase with our axes. Is certainly one of my favorites.

This was my first technical winter ascent and it was a great one. Very cold in the shadows on the face but well worth it.

led jim up the interesting north face to add some spice to his rainier training regimen. the route wasn't overly challenging yet exciting at the same time with a mixture of rock and snow climbing. certainly a memorable day!

This was my first winter technical climb. It was a long day. The technical pitch was easy. Once above the technical pitch, we got off route. It became extremely steep and I became uncomfortable on 65-70 degree snow slopes un-roped. We turned around about 200 feet below the summit. The rappel was fun, and I learned a lot this day.

SarahThompsonMy 1st technical winter climb!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 15, 2008

Despite the sketchy weather forecast for the last weekend of winter, we went for it anyway and lucked out. It was pretty chilly, especially waiting around on the technical section. It was interesting to climb with crampons and big gloves on instead of frictioning up the slabs as you'd do in the summer. 15 hour day!!!

Rejected for the fourth winter attempt on Long's in my life. Tried the day before on 3rd of Feb, very windy (57mph), decided to stop at Mills Moraine and stash most of the gear under a rock to return the 4th. Day was calm and relatively warm (0-10F). Began to snow lightly. Climbed the first pitch of the N face and realized that the "light" snow had accumulated to about 12". Had to retreat. Note to anyone who might come across this: hiking from Boulder Field to treeline covered with 12-18" of champagne powder is very hazardous. Take care. We'll probably try the Trough next time for simplicity's sake. But not this year.
