 Longs-Cables Route   

Keifer and Ryan joined me for an attempt on Cables Route on Longs. I had never done it before.

Moved a tad too slowly I guess and got to the base of the route by around noon or so and 3 guys on one rope slowed us even more. Long story short....we rapped off before we got to the summit.

I will be back in a few weeks to complete.

Keifer told me it was super cold but looks like you guys could keep yourselves entertained (image 11). Hope you have better luck next time!

Look at the bright side. You get a winter ascent. Trust me, you'll look back on it and be grateful.

So, any more photos of the rock section? Any ice?

Now... I better not say anything about whether Old Man Winter cooperates over the next 10 days... XX (Fingers crossed.)

Looked like a typical cold day up there. Cables in winter is still on my short list. Enjoyed the slideshow by Monster5 as well.
