Notes: This climb was much tougher than I expected due to a number of factors. Firstly, there was the crazy heat. The temperature was in the high 60‘s when we left the ranger station at 2am in shorts and t-shirts. On the decent it was easily in the high 70s to low 80‘s at the boulder field. Other factors which made the climb seem really hard: I had a head cold which may have made it seem harder to me, and I was also less fit than I have been in previous years. So, it seemed really tough and took a long time. But Long‘s is a great climb, and in spite of the pain I did enjoy it.
