Snowpack up until Keyhole decent (microspikes only). Tough route-finding along the Ledges, as many of the blazes are still snow-covered, with some pretty scrambly rock-hopping all the way up to the Through. The Narrows ultimately proved to be too loose and exposed for both myself and a couple of other seasoned mountaineers. Silver lining: one of the few days I've been on Long's without crazy wind!

Average pace: 45min./mi.

45min./mi. UP
Probably closer to 30min./mi. DOWN, though I did jog on and off below the Boulderfield.
Ledges and Trough were definitely the majority of the hike, slow-going both up and down.
