Longs Peak's Last Mile


6. Aug 2006.  soatley's 2nd picture.

When you cross the crest from the Homestretch onto the summit, you are very close to the summit cairn and the overlook of Chasm.  That supports this Homestretch route, as it ascends to the right towards that same area of the summit.

Unfortunately, the combination of distance from Sandbeach Lake and my zoom level don't allow us to clearly see people on the route to the Homestretch.  I've included a couple of pictures from last year's Chiefs Head climb that do include people starting the HS.
