Ascent Trip Report

Link to 'The Great Cirque' trip report

The idea for the Mt. Meeker to Long’s Peak traverse came to me last December after climbing Mt. Meeker on a clear, cool morning. Sitting on the Meeker summit rock, I looked over the Loft to Longs Peak and saw the potential for a beautiful traverse. At that moment, I decided I would come back to bag the two-summit traverse. The idea eventually grew into a quest to bag “Colorado’s greatest mountain cirque” (Roach).
