Long’s Peak Hike: The Keyhole
This is the second set of photos from my hike to the summit of Long's Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park. This set was taken just before and just after the Keyhole. The Keyhole is quite large and it's no small feat to climb up to it.
Before the Keyhole it was a nice hike. After the Keyhole everything became serious: serious views, serious elevation change, and very serious danger. From the Keyhole onward you are literally one step away from falling over steep cliffs.
The views after the Keyhole are breathtaking. The trail is marked by paint spots on the boulders. You have to take care to aim for the next marker or you'll end up off the trail like I did a couple of times. That's partly because the trail is not really a trail. It's just a bunch of boulders and steep ledges you climb over and around.
The fear factor steadily increased with every step after the Keyhole.
