The Homestretch

The Homestretch

For some reason, so many photos of the Homestretch make it appear much steeper than it actually is. Yes, it's pretty steep, but looking down it from the summit actually gives a bit truer picture. Keyhole Route - Longs Peak RMNP August 24, 2015

Re: Homestretch

Thanks! Artificially steep, but it always amazes me how steep this section actually is.

That is a ......

tough section of the climb. I would have never attempted it if it looked anything like that!!

Re: That is a ......

It is steep, but like I said, for some reason, pictures from the bottom always make it look steeper than it really is. That being said. I would say I was more nervous on this stretch than I had been on my two previous summits, although it's always made me a bit nervous.
