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.

Iron Gates Up, Loft Down  Sucess!

After summitting Meeker Ridge via the Iron Gates route, we traversed the Meeker knife edge to Meeker's summit. Perfect weather minus the haze from the PNW fires. The knife edge was somewhat scary but very stable. Great footholds on the north side of the knife edge. Super fun route. After summitting, Jesse went on to do the radical slam and Andrea and I went down the Loft. Total time out around 9 hours.

Meeker Biathalon  Sucess!

Biked from my house in Boulder to LP Trailhead, up Iron Gates, ridgeline scramble, down Loft, and back out. Fun day. Glad to have finally bagged this 13er. 13 hours door to door.

Grand Slam - Longs and its 4 buttress peaks  Sucess!

Missed Lamb's Slide and went up Ship's Prow for a puckering crux of climbing around ice...yeah that was questionable but good holds regardless since we stayed to the left at the top of the couloir.

Loft Route  Sucess!

Started from Longs Peak trailhead around 6:45AM. Hardened snow for most of route. Snowfield in between chasm junction and Chasm lake. Highly suggest crampons and ice axe. Loft couloir was solid. Snow was softened near top of couloir due to direct sunlight. Descended via Meeker Ridge and into Iron Gates. Snow was wet the rest of trip. Back at car around 3PM.

Loft Route  Sucess!

Excellent route to the summit, short and sweet, then traversed to Longs.

Twice   Sucess!

Did it twice. Once to each of the summits. First time started from much below chasm and then ended up at sandbeach lake and wild basin. 2nd time did it via the loft and then onto longs and then down the old cable route

Via the loft. Ice on the ledges. Hit both summits.

Meeker and Meeker Ridge  Sucess!

Solo from Sandbeach TH. 4 hours car to summit. Was thrown off track for 1/2 hour in Meeker Bowl- it was a bog, with the ground saturated with water 6" deep. Rather than continue on the SW ridge route, I bushwhacked from the meadow at the base of the bowl to low on Meeker Ridge (~12000 feet), then took it up and over the east summit across the knife edge ridge to the real summit. Awesome day, great temps, only saw 4 other climbers. Long's was packed. I don't think there is a bad route up Meeker.

Dreamweaver  Sucess!

Dreamweaver route was real straightforward it was the descent off the Loft that was some of the scariest stuff I'd ever done. Thank god it didn't slide

Mount Meeker and Meeker Ridge via Loft Direct  Sucess!

Solo climb of Mount Meeker and Meeker Ridge via Loft Direct. Climbed the buttress in the center of the Loft headwall instead of taking the standard ramp. After summiting Meeker, traversed to the high point of Meeker Ridge. Descended the next gully north of the Iron Gates. Nice rock, fun scrambling/climbing, great views.

Loft route  Sucess!

Year of no snow so brought but didn't need crampons, able to climb on rocks in all but one short spot.

Loft Route  Sucess!

I climbed Meeker with hiking buddy Marco and his friends, Jeff and Ray. We got an early start: 4AM, and surprisingly, there were plenty of empty spaces in the lot. I guess some hikers had been scared off by thunderstorms the previous day. Ray had been up here before, so he was invaluable in finding the correct route at the ridges. I went to the true summit, around 8:30. The others were content with staying on the summit ridge. The weather was clear until around 9:30-10AM, when clouds started rolling in. It was overcast by the time we got back to the trailhead.
