'hole truth  Sucess!

Elspeth and I camped @ Jim's grove (this is '87) the first night and saddled up at 7:00 the next morning, summited at 11:45. It started snowing descending the homestretch and there was about a foot by the boulder field. Picked up camp & back to the car at 7:00

Keyhole  Sucess!

Took my 17 year old son up Long's via the keyhole. This was his first time in the mountains and he quite enjoyed it. Left the rangers station at 3:30, made the summit at 8:00 am. Beautiful weather and views. Had a snack and spent about 30 minutes on top. Back at the car by noon.

Longs Peak via Keyhole  Sucess!

Climbed Longs on probably the most beautifil day of the year. An amazing experience. Started from Ranger Station @ 3:00 a.m. and summited by 9:00. Climbed with a group of myself and 4 friends and met lots of neat people on the trail. Thanks Longs Peak for a day I will never forget!!

Std. Keyhole Route  Sucess!

Left TH at 4am, summitted at 9 with a handful of others. Ran into dozens of people on the way down and thankful for the early start. Also thankful we ascended in the dark as the walk out was rather boring. Still though, this peak has many different aspects that I feel make it one of CO's favorite 14er.

Windy Keyhole  Sucess!

Spent three nights in the boulder field and went for the summit on Sunday, just before a white-out storm Monday morning on the climb down. Great climb though!

Keyhole Route  Sucess!

Climbed the standard route with Dustin Kelley and Eric Holle. Lot of people on the mountain, but an interesting climb. Weather started to get bad at the end.

Keiners  Sucess!

Epic day on Keiners, one of the best routes I have EVER done. Did not see anyone else on the entire mountain other than a couple camped below the Keyhole. Crazy, and we thought it would be crowded!

casual rt.  Sucess!

Climbed casual rt. Got caught in hail storm half way up pitch 5 luckily was able to retreat to a cave on top of pitch 4 waited out the lightning and finished to the d7 rap. Anchors was pretty epic but all in all it was a great climb.

Traverse from Mt. Meeker  Sucess!

This was a looong day with several friends back in the summer of 2005. Definitely a bonding and learning experience. Will be back again someday.

CO Classic  Sucess!

The Keyhole is a CO classic. Great trail. Start early to avoid the crowds. It's long, but worth it.

Still Unforgettable!  Sucess!

My second, and probably last, trip to the summit. Weather was perfect, and I was able to spend some time at the top, which I couldn't last time. Altogether, the trip took 2-1/2 hours longer than it did in 2002. A very long, gruelling day, but what a payoff!
