Longs Peak

December 14 2020

A surprising amount of time has elapsed since Sophia, Diego, and I summited Longs Peak as part of my fiancee’s annual b-day 14er tradition, and this entry was posted. Soph and I have had our hands full prepping our recently acquired off-the-grid home for winter. More on that in a follow up memo.

Longs Peak certainly deserves its name. As one of the lengthier single summit 14ers, we knew we’d have our work cut out for us but figured we could rope in a friend to share in the sufferfest. Fortunately Diego, who’s been on a hunt to bag the centennial 13ers, was game for the challenge when we mentioned we planned on ascending the Loft Route which passes right by Mt. Meeker.

A few notable events from this outing:
