Longs Peak Climbing Notes

Asif Waziri from UNITED STATES writes:

Easy summer ascent on the mammoth of the East Long's massive Diamond sets the precedent of an illusion, and perhaps even a delusion for the winter hardy mountain climbers. Climbing the Diamond face of Long's peak, especially in a free hand-solo, rope/anchor-free ascent in the middle of a winter storm, in minus 50 windchill temperatures, in the setting of a hundred pound mountaineering pack on one's shoulder, in my opinion, remains at best an elusive aspiration perhaps not meant to be fulfilled in the current times and era.
