 Longs/ North Face/ Cables   

Climbed Longs via cables today. Really warm... might as well have been in Florida. Left TH at 0510. Summit at 1130. TH at 1600. A little ice and snow in the cracks on the technical bit but otherwise surprisingly dry... I climbed barehanded. The snow in the coming days will probably change these conditions though. Above the cables the north face has a bit of snow. Wore crampons most of the way but took them off about 100 feet short of the summit.
