Great time on the peak, although it took much longer than anticipated. I worked out the estimated time using my pace instead of the slowest of the group. We left at 5 am and I figured that we'd summit by 10 and be down by 2. I was 12 hours off! :-)
If in reasonable shape, I expect that 9 hours would be ample time. I plan on climbing Long's again this year and will do it alone. I like to find a pace and then stick to it. The trip described in the paragraph above was a _VERY_ start/stop sort of experience, although we sure did have plenty of time to contemplate the views! :-)
Excellent peak. One of my favorites.
