Well done! It is a thrilling route, yes? I just re-lived some fine memories through your report! Thanks for posting, great pics!

Great TR! Very informative. Gives me hope to follow in those tracks someday!


Nice Job!     2009-07-27 17:05:13
Terrific report about a great route. Nice up and down.


Very Nice!!!!!!!!     2009-07-27 17:15:48
Very nice climb.


Congratulations! Spectacular!     2009-07-27 18:33:45
Congratulations, Tom and Benners, on your spectacular (and safe!) climb. The photos were magnificent, but I am sure they don‘t do the ”real” route justice. Probably the finest trip report I have ever viewed (but I don‘t want to give you guys swelled heads, ha ha). Great writing, great climbing. Hope to run into you both sometime on the mountains.



Nice one guys!     2011-05-02 08:23:28
Glad the weather cooperated. I know Ben has been looking forward to getting this route. It‘s definitely on my Long‘s to do list too.


Cheers, gents!     2009-07-27 21:34:22
Nice climb, spectacular mountain, and I thoroughly enjoyed the TR.

Always good to see the rare routes. Enjoyed your TR. I'm excited to attempt Longs for the first time soon but I'll likely stick to the standard route. But I can see myself maybe someday...


hell yeah Ben     2009-08-03 14:51:46
I too am looking foward to this route one day. Looks like you captured the adventure well, and a hell of a job capturing the exposure.

Thanks all, Kieners is definitely a classic route, get up there and check it out!
