August 11, 2010. I'm walking through "The Narrows" section of the Keyhole route on Longs Peak. Longs Peak is a 14,259 foot peak in Rocky Mountain National Park.
The Keyhole route is about 16 miles round trip and has about 5000 feet of elevation gain. The route took me 12 hours and 6 minutes from car to car. Pretty good for someone who lives in a suburb of Houston (nearly sea level -- and flat!) and doesn't get to hike but once a year.
