Spring ascent of The Trough Couloir  Sucess!

Perfect weather, perfect snow. Everything was just perfect. Great camp at Black Lake. The approach was a bit slushy though.

Mills Lake/Keyhole

Snowshoed in during a snow storm and it never stopped. Woke up the next morning to 3' of fresh stuff, started up the peak but turned around because avy danger in the couloir

Weekend finale!  Sucess!

After Elbert then Massive, Long's was the crowning jewel of the three trails. The weather was fantastic. Heading left instead of right, in the dark, at the crossroads gave me the un-asked for but added bonus of sunrise at Chasm Lake.

via Keyhole, and nearly False Keyhole...  Sucess!

First time up Longs. Mostly overcast day but forecasted gusting winds never materialized and it was surprisingly still at the summit. Zoning out on the descent I was drawn, as if by Sirens Song, to the precipice of the False Keyhole. Later viewing it from the Boulder Field whence I regained the route, I was happy to have followed the advice of the weathered sign "do not descend the False Keyhole".

Keyhole Route  Sucess!

Climbed the keyhole route with my friend Jake. Topped out around 8:00am. I thought the exposure was fine but the capstone at the top of the Trough was a little tricky.

Pervertical Sanctuary (5.10c)

Great route on an incredible face! Unfortuantely, we were stuck behind a party of two and a party of three... slow going. Waiting about an hour at each belay. Decided to bail after four pitches.

Via loft and clark's arrow  Sucess!

After Meeker, across Clark's Arrow route. About 200 people on top. Crazy. Added Lady Washington after Keyhole.

Longs  Sucess!

Made the summit at 7:39 AM. Great day. Shared the mountain with some great folks on that day. To the hiker that turned in my ipod shuffle to the Longs Peak Rangers on the 13th of August: You are an amazing individual! You are an inspiration to us all! Thank-you! Thank-you!

Longs via Keyhole

Made it to the benckmark (13750') at the top of the Trough. Conditions were good and people were summiting - members of my party were a drag, hence my decision. See my detailed story with photos: http://hubpages.com/hub/Climbing-Longs-Peak-A-Personal-Narrative
