Description:

Easy route on the North Face that starts to the right of Chasm view. A good way to avoid the crowds of hikers on the Keyhole route.

4 out of 5 stars Best way to do Longs

Really fun route, super easy and a quicker way to the top than the Keyole route. We had a bit of an adventure though on our ascent, but still faster... Half the route was covered in snow so we went up the side to a ledge, set up an anchor and then traversed across the snow in hiking boots. We also climbed the route in boots too with no problem.

This was a great first Alpine Technical climb for my brothers and I. We avoided Snow and Ice by climbing a crack system to the left of the actual cable route, but I would rate it a 5.4 also. We decended the Keyhole route to check it out since we have never climbed Longs Peak before.
