This is an offering we like to call a “collection of awesome”. These are itineraries linking together our favorite objectives in the way we’d choose to experience them with our friends (i.e. YOU)! All of our offerings are 100% customizable, and the sample itinerary below is no exception. By spending almost a week with us, your guide will get to know you and be better able to craft an experience that’s just right for you.

Day 1:
The first day will be spent in Eldorado Canyon State Park. The convenience and variety of climbing here makes the Edo a perfect venue to review and/or learn the technical skills you’ll need for the bigger days to come. On this day your guide will be focused on helping you advance your movement and at the same time talking through a plan for the week. Oh, did we mention Eldo is awesome!

Day 2:
The second day is spent packing and hiking into a bivy site in Rocky Mountain National Park. The Chasm Cirque below the Diamond of Long’s Peak is a common place to base out of.

Day 3:
There are a number of ways this day could be spent if we’re in the Chasm Cirque. Zumie’s Thumb is a great objective, the Flying Dutchman, rock climbs on the Diamond… there are endless options!

Day 4:
We’ll choose a climb to the summit of Long’s such as Keiner’s Route or any number of other iconic routes on the Diamond depending on the difficulty desired.

Selected Routes

Kiener’s Route on Long’s Peak

A classic mountaineering route on the left shoulder of the Diamond. There is moderate snow climbing up to the Broadway traverse. Off Broadway a couple of low 5th pitches gain the 3rd and 4th class shoulder of the diamond leading to the summit. This route can be done from the car in a day or from a bivy at Mills Glacier.
