Longs Peak on 11Jun2024

Post by jeffmpls »

If someone would like to join me, I'm planning on Longs via the Keyhole on Tuesday (11th), weather dependent. I have flexibility to move the date to Wednesday, or Thursday, but according to OpenSnow, Tuesday looking like the better of the three- a bit windy, although moderate by Longs standards. Crampons & ice ax from the Keyhole up, and there could be some post-holing on the return from the Keyhole down to the campsites, although from there down it will be 90% clear. 3:30 am start, comfortable & experienced in crampons and the use of an ice ax. Last year my climbing times were 9.5 to 10.5 hours on Longs, not speedy, so expect a long day. Private message if you're interested.
