Highlights
  • As the only Colorado 14er in Rocky Mountain National Park, Longs Peak has long been of interest to hikers and climbers.
  • It is the most popular fourteener and on a given summer weekend day typically sees hundreds of ascents.
  • The easiest route, the Keyhole Route, is non-technical during the summer season.
  • The East Face of the mountain is quite steep and is surmounted by a gigantic sheer cliff known as "The Diamond" (so-named because of its shape, approximately that of a cut diamond seen from the side and inverted ).
  • Another famous profile belongs to Longs Peak: to the southeast of the summit is a series of rises which, when viewed from the northeast, resembles a beaver climbing the mountain.
