Perhaps THE most amazing of all the incredible records on Longs is the overall, car-to-car speed record of 1h56m48s, set by RMNP climbing ranger Andy Anderson on Aug. 8, 2012, shattering his own record of 2h02m54s set about a year earlier (Aug. 23, 2011). Anderson's ascent & descent splits were 1h14m08s and 42m40s, respectively, giving him the ascent record as well, though probably not the descent record. The previous ascent record was set by Mike Sullivan in 1982, 1h18m31s, also via the Cables Route. An interview with Anderson after his 2011 record is here
