Colorado Ice Climbing on Long's Peak -

Alexander's Chimney/The Notch

Over 2000 vertical feet of great climbing usually best in late fall.  IV, AI4, 5.5: one of the classic ice climbs of the Park.

When in condition, climb thin ice and mixed terrain up the lower east face of Long's through the feature known as Alexander's Chimney, traverse 50 yards on Broadway, then continue up the moderate snow couloir to the prominent notch on the skyline of Long's Peak.
