I don't want to sit here and tell you all about my trips up and down the peak. Just know that I finally guided the peak on June 30th and will again on July 30th. Funny, on June 30th, I managed pretty well with my client while my boss hunched over and puked his brains out near the Keyhole. I got a kick out of that. I've always been confident in my abilities. Well aware of what I am capable of and not capable of. Longs Peak, is a HUGE mountain and yet.. it's not unlike any mountain I've done back East. At 14,259' in elevation, Longs is the Northern-most 14er in Colorado and is the highest point in Rocky Mountain National Park. It was first climbed by John Wesley Powell (yeah.. that guy) back in 1868. Below are some of the pictures I've taken during the last month on Longs.
