Krupicka also set a very fast (FKT) time for one of Longs Peak's most classic routes - Keiners. About a week after an easy climb to learn the route (and some of the short-cuts for the trail sections) with Buzz Burrell and Peter Bakwin, he blitzed this moderately technical (up to 5.4 climbing, moderate snow) route in 2h26m11s car-to-car (ascent in 1h34m54s) on 6/24/2012. The standard descent for climbers is via the North Face, but Krupicka used the slower Keyhole route down to the Boulderfield, then all the short-cuts.
