I did not plan anything for this challenge. But I was up hiking to Chasm Lake, and looking at the east face of Longs Peak, I figured why not. The summit is 14,259 feet (4,346 m). Definitely worth the 7.5 mile hike. Round trip.

CS3 edits; Contrast +25, auto curves, and then some more minor curves tweaks, B&W filter, re-size, and add border.

I normally hate borders, but I think it really helps make this picture even better.

Nice strong b/w. I'd like to know how you did the adjustments to get this look.

Looks like Long's to me. Nice perspective and fine detail. From Chasm Lake, I presume? "10"
