Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park is one of Colorado’s best-known Fourteeners. At 14, 259 feet above sea level, the summit provides 360° views of surrounding wilderness. This climb takes the historic Cable Route over 7 miles from the trailhead to the summit, crossing through The Boulderfield at 12,500 feet. It involves a few short-but-technical climbs and a few hundred feet of Class 3 rock scrambling. Guided by Colorado Mountain School.
Key Considerations: high altitude, some technical rock climbing, +/- 5000′ elevation gain, unpredictable summer weather
