rare view of the mountain

I thought I'd seen Longs from almost every angle, but this shot is new to me. Really excellent how the picture captures the character of the peak!

Re: rare view of the mountain

Thanks, glad you enjoyed it.

Copeland Mountain is a nice hike with a great summit view of Longs Peak, the peaks in the southern part of Rocky Mountain National Park and the Indian Peaks.

Let me know if you'd like route info and a map.

Peace, Jim

Hey Jim-

Could I add this picture with a route overlay to the Loft Route page here on SP? This picture is excellent and to date is the best one that illustrates the backside of the Loft Route. Nicely done!

Great Angle!

This shot is also a tremendous picture of the route up Keplinger's Couloir, along with the Palisades and SE Longs. Nice photo, as are all of your submissions to SummitPost!
