Longs Peak

Kieners Route - Class 5.4

On August 25th Kristi Floyd Henes, Dan Hamann, Andrea Wennersten and I climbed the Kieners Route on Longs Peak. The weather was perfect and the day was long. We had an incredible time. We were celebrating Kristis birthday and it was Andreas first 14er. The route goes at 5.4, so we used an alpine rack . . . Nuts, hexes and a few cams. Some parts were a little challenging in boots, but super classic route. Full value, got our moneys worth! 15.5 hour day . . . We were on the trail for sun rise and sun set.
