Palisades and Mount Meeker near the Homestretch
After completing the Class 3 climb of the Trough on the standard Keyhole Route for Longs Peak, you enjoy a few minutes of easy walking that reveals this view to the south (the shattered cliffs are called the Palisades) shortly before you begin the Homestretch, the final push up to the summit plateau of Longs.

These cliffs, on the southwest side of The Notch are called The Palisades. There are a couple of old climbing routes on them.
Peace, Jim

Thanks, Jim. Looking at my maps, I thought they might be the Palisades, but I didn't want to guess and post something incorrect. Thanks again!
