A nice solo day on Longs. Had the summit to myself for a half hour. Never tire of Longs. Seventh summit; seventh route.
Probably the nicest weather I've had up there, and in the winter no less! A great group to share the summit with. With Kiefer, Prakash, et al.
Nice winter climb. The weather was good, and the snow was real good.
summited longs on a beautiful march day with nellis and layne. snow conditions in the trough were pristine.
can't believe the end of winter has come so quickly! that's alright, i need the rest.
Stable but passable snow conditions. Good route. The glissade down was pretty sweet. Two others in our party skied it.
Some of the best weather I've ever experienced under calender winter.
This was my first ascent with Haliku. It was an arduous day, but the weather and views were great.
A winter ascent of Longs has been very elusive for me. This year all the variables came together beautifully for an easy ascent of the Trough in great weather, with great company. Climbed with zenalpinist, mlatham, marella, pksander, charlesd, brenta, and thebeave7.
We, rkymtn and I, got an early start on what was a beautiful Colorado winter day. The snow in the Trough wasn't consolidated so we had to kick step the whole way. It also meant we couldn't glissade on the way down. A long day but well worth the workout.
