Hi! Anyone up for climbing the keyhole ridge route on Long's Peak this weekend? It will be cold, but fun! This is my last weekend in Colorado for an undetermined amount of time, and I'd really like to get another alpine route in. I'd be open to doing a different route as well. Thanks! Sarah K

Very cold and very snowy. Not a rock climb. :o)

Good luck if you go!

Thanks! Yeah, it's going to be cold and snowy, and there is already ice up there. I'm prepared for mixed climbing. Thanks for the tip! Sarah K

Ambitious with new snow, cold and wind. Bring ice tools, a competent partner that you did not meet on the internet, and post pictures when you return. Good luck! Andy Novak

after the hard stuff, into cruiser hands.
Having done the route a few weeks ago, I don't think it would be that bad if it isn't windy. The climbing is ridiculously easy. NickinCO

Ignore the naysayers! I think this will be a blast, so long as you have the requisite experience and endurance for suffering the notorious winter winds on Long's. I would do if it I didn't have a crappy job that required me to work weekends!

Be safe and post pics (especially for those of us scouting lines and seeing what's in and what's not).

Cheers!
