|Peak:||Longs Peak (14er)|
|Route:||Loft - via East Longs Trailhead|
|Date of Information:||06/22/2012|
Longs via Loft Route with Mt Meeker thrown in for good measure.
No microspikes or anything needed. One "spot" of ice on the loft couloir - but unlike the misleading posts usually typed up here - the ramps are not icy. There is ice in 1 spot, but there are lots of spots to go around it. Loft to Keplinger's to summit of Longs was 99.99% dry - with some occasional snow melt running - but totally avoidable.
