I had entertained the possibility of climbing The Spearhead, which would have given me a better angle on Long's West face. However, the path required to do so traversed a boulder field seemingly reminiscent of Long's bolder field. OK I'm exaggerating a little, the rocks weren't as large as Long's but it still would have been a lot of rock hopping just to get to the climbable side of the Spearhead. And then I'd still have to climb it, assuming of course that it was easier than the side I photographed. The North base looked good enough to me.
