Right down the line for the winner  Sucess!

Up at 230 on route by 3. Hooked up with a couple of dudes and it was smooth as silk. One foot in front of the other all day and not as bad as you read online (tip, don't read online, just f**king GO!). Did Lewis and Clark read online? Be daring, get off the internet and get on route! A whole different world once through the Keyhole but the markers help immensely. Easily doable as long as you are in shape and want to do it!

Surprising not crowded on a Saturday - Keyhole  Sucess!

Perfect weather to hike this beast of a mountain. There were hardly any people on it on a Saturday. This is a classic hike.

#15 Grand Slam - 5 in a day!  Sucess!

Connected Ship's Prow to Clark's Arrow in order to get Meeker and Long's in one long, swift go. Great weather and only 2 other parties on the mountain.

Kiener's Route  Sucess!

The date is approximate. I climbed this with my wife's sister's husband. Fantastic route, reminiscent of the East Face route on Mt. Whitney. We descended the north face as a short-cut back to the Key hole route trail, requiring some rappelling.

Via Lamb's Slide  Sucess!

Started at 12:00AM (started early for sunrise). Lamb's Slide was solid snow. As far as I was aware, it was all hard snow with no ice, but then again it was completely dark. Used Loft traverse to Homestretch. Made it to top at 6AM in time for sunrise. I am very familiar with the area, but I must say that traveling with only a headlamp for light is a challenge here. Back at car at 11:30AM after staying at summit for an hour.

Great day! 7.5 hour RT with mucho breaks. Great mountain, not as crowder as expected.

North Face  Sucess!

Left tent at 3am from Goblin. We had a blue-bird day, great climb up the north face, and alone most of the time on the summit and trek out, which was surprising and nice. Some snow climbing and crossings still there, but not a problem. Bit of wet rock at times. Great day!

Longs Last Minute  Sucess!

Decided we were going to go up at 4pm the day before. Started climbing at 3am via Keyhole Route. Brought microspikes and used them once, but all snow was avoidable. Summited at 9am and were down by 2pm, narrowly avoiding a thunderstorm.

Windy and alone  Sucess!

It was really windy, but I was training for a really windy peak. So it all worked out.

Rainy and tiring  Sucess!

Rained most of the day. Slippery up on the Keyhole Route. No lightning luckily. Such an exhausting hike. Beautiful views.

Keyhole  Sucess!

Pretty straightforward route. Insane winds the day we went up, and a bunch of the folks we were hiking around turned back at the keyhole. The winds made the Narrows a little interesting, but nothing too difficult. Fun route!

Re: Keyhole Route

100% agree. Straightforward and graded Class 3 appropriately with negligent exposure and never without ample holds. With any inclement weather it would be a whole different ballgame, but in nice condition it's simply a great, interesting route with manageable obstacles.
