Great hike, only ones on top  Sucess!

Perfect day, no wind. Basically took the ridge up from Chasm Junction, then came around in a loop.

Nice tour from Longs Peak TH  Sucess!

Enjoyed the rock hop to this summit. Included a side trip to Battle Mtn. Marmots were out in force! With Aaron + Ellen.

Radical Slam  Sucess!

10 Peaks of Longs Peak (Nesotaieux’s Ten Tadasanas, Radical Slam Deluxe, “Sick Concoction”) — 17 hours and 10,000 ft of elevation gain. Yesterday, I completed the most demanding physical and mental challenge I’ve ever attempted. Started at 2:30am up the Iron Gates route. Climbed Meeker Ridge, then traversed the amazingly terrifying Knife Edge (I’m so scared of heights, especially 100% fatal ones) to Meeker. I continued on my lonesome to Southeast Longs, and then I got dangerously off route trying to take the Loft to Longs. I miraculously made it with sections of Class 4 (definitely 5 when I got off route) down climbing and met up with the Homestretch portion of the Keyhole. Bagged Longs Peak, then on to Pagoda. Again, off route on fatal ledges before I wasted valuable time back tracking. Found the right route and made it to Pagoda with only a brief Class 4 exciting moment. Traversed below the Trough to the Ledges, passed through the Keyhole, then meandered to Storm. Found some water to filter at the base (thank goodness) before bagging Mount Lady Washington. On to the easy stuff with Battle Mountain and Pine Ridge, then a heartbreaking hour-long bushwack to connect to the Estes Cone Trail. Climbed Estes Cone, cried for a while, and then finished the last 3 miles to the truck before doing 10 pushups (90 less the Gerry Roach demands) and finishing the most epic adventure of my life.

Milady  Sucess!

My wife, in laws, and I first went to Battle Mountain then traversed the Northeast Slopes to the top of the Lady. Gotta echo the fact that the views of Longs from the peak are tremendous. It takes up almost your entire view. We saw some climbers heading up the Diamond. A storm hit us once we got below Chasm Junction. Other than that a beautiful day!

Grand Slam - Longs and its 4 buttress peaks  Sucess!

Summit has a better view than Long's summit. 100% worth the extra elevation gain.

East Slopes Route  Sucess!

Started around 6:30AM. No snow along the route to the top. No wind at the summit either which was a nice bonus. Dropped down to boulder fields from summit (there was snow here) and used granite pass to return to the normal trail down. Back at car around 2PM.

Up east slope down north  Sucess!

packed trail to Chasm Junction. Then either crusty snow or no snow up to summit and back to trail at Granite Pass.

Outstanding scenery!

That was a workout!  Sucess!

Started too late since we were with a larger group and the Diamond was clouded over, but the climb was great. Lots of big boulders, though. More work than I expected. Got to the top about 2:00. Back to trailhead by 5:00.

Fun First Climb

Great first climb, however we didn't achieve the actual summit. High on the mountain there was a saddle, and we made the mistake of climbing up to the south rather than the north lol. Great views regardless!

east slope  Sucess!

I didn't believe the stories about the wind...had to find out for myself. It truly is windy up on that ridge. Great views and NO other folks up there today :)
