 LONGS PEAK Keyhole Winter Ascent & Cable-route Descent   

Hey Guys,

My friend Scott and I started climbing the Keyhole-route from the Ranger-Station at 1:00 AM on Friday and we reached the Summit at 3:00 PM after 14 hours of hiking and climbing. We descended from the Cables-route and climbed-hiking back to the car. It was really cold, windy and snowing all the time. We got back to the car 12:00 AM on Saturday. Time car to car 23 hours. We couldn't believe what we did.

I hope you write it up a bit more, if you still haven‘t caught up on your sleep. It definitely is impressive!

She sounds cute/athletic.

That‘s a big climb. A 23 hour day on Longs makes me tired just thinking about it.

Wendy is windy, sorry about my typing. Yes, it was a really long day and we were very tired, but we talk only a couples of times and we decided to summit knowing that the weather was bad and we were tired.
