DescriptionThis is an amalgamation of area between the Diamond/Chasm View Wall and the West Face of Long's Peak. The climbs in this area are probably more mountaineering in nature than much of the rest of the climbs on Long's Peak.
Historically, this aspect of the peak is important as it was once equipped with cables to facilitate non-climber's ascent of the peak. Since, these cables have been removed, and this face has much reduced traffic. It is often used for the descent of routes off the top of the Diamond.
Routes along here include: The Cable Route, 5.4 or M2; Keyhole Ridge, 5.4; The Keyhole, 3rd class.
