We will meet up at 9:00 AM at 88th and Sheridan PNR, PARKING LOT side.
We will hike to the boulderfield, set up camp and enjoy the sunset. Wake up early to my *glorious* voice singing to you, to start our early morning Sunday summit.
I have turned around at keyhole due to weather(August) and that is where the hard part actually starts!!! I had a successful summit last year on Labor Day but there were 300 on "trail".
Long's is part hike and part climb. It's a Class 3 14er which means there is a good technical section.
- Trailhead: 9,400
- Summit: 14,255
- RT Length: 14 miles
- Trail all the way to summit: No aka Class three technical climb.
- Class three: Scrambling or un-roped climbing. You must use your hands most of the time to hold the terrain or find your route. This may be caused by a combination of steepness and extreme terrain (large rocks or steep snow). Some Class 3 routes are better done with rope.
- Required checklist-Will be sent in a personal email to you.
- Your sense of adventure.
In order to go on this trip. You will have to complete a 14er/13er with me. More kimmy time!
