Longs/Kiener's conditions?

Postby Voodoo302 » Mon Oct 01, 2012 8:10 am

Anyone go up to Longs last weekend? Looking at doing Kiener's this week and I'm wondering about snow and ice on Broadway and the upper route. I've seen the reports on the Keyhole and I'm sure Lamb's Slide is great fun but I haven't been able to get any beta on the rest of the climb. Photos if you were in the area would be super helpful. Thanks!

Been wondering the same thing myself. Might head up there mid-week, Wednesday or Thursday, look at Alexander's and climb either Kiener's or 'The Beaver' :-D (sorry, I can't say that without smiling!)
Would ya be interested in either day?

If I go I'll be joining a team that's planning on going tomorrow. We/they'll probably go either way, I'm just hoping for some current conditions. I'll be sure to update tomorrow night though.

I was at Chasm Lake on Friday and two guys had turned back due to ice up high, but it was melting FAST when we were there...

I cannot say conclusively that they were on Kiener's...
