Longs Peak Summit Log (#4621)

We left the trailhead at 2:15am on what turned out to be a perfect day. The hike up was cool and windy, but the weather improved after sunrise. Lisa and I took many water and air breaks on our way up.
At the Keyhole we met Ron, William and Mark (from Tenessee) who were also attempting Longs for the first time. They just had much more confidence than we had. We gladly accepted when they asked if we'd like to join them for the climb. Ron led the way followed closely by William, then Mark, and Lisa with me at the back. Thanks for your encouragement gentlemen!
Lisa and Bill McKirgan
PS: Hey, Al (who drives the '68 'Stang) email me. I got a pic of you and Nathan at the summit. You both look a little dogged-out but glad to be there.
