5 out of 5 stars Winter Descent Route

Used this a our descent route from the summit, the slabs were iced and loaded. Follow the bulls eyes painted on the rocks to stay on route, and don't ditch into glacier basin no matter what, 1 1/2 to 2 day hake out to the road.

4 out of 5 stars Keyhole Route - Long's Peak

We camped at the boulderfield below the Keyhole and ascended the next morning. I'd recommend that over starting a hike / climb at 1 am from the parking lot. We were the first to the summit that morning, and had a leisurely walk out. Very nice. You'll need a permit to overnight.

5 out of 5 stars Hike with the tourons

Fun hike up Longs. If you go in the summer start early and expect a crowd in the Homestretch and top of the Narrows.
