Longs Peak is the only 14,000-foot peak located within Rocky Mountain National Park, and is the most frequently climbed of Colorado's fourteeners. It towers over its surrounding peaks in the northern Front Range of the Colorado Rockies. Its most notable feature is its spectacular 1,675-foot east face, a portion of which, the sheer 1,000-foot Diamond Face, has long been respected by climbers as an extraordinary challenge.
