Ascent Trip Report

Hike to Chasm lake with Brian C. Lefct the truck at around 8:30 am just to check out the possible "camel" route up to the boulderfield on Longs Peak. We are going on Wed. So we wanted to see another possible route where we did not have to go through Granite Pass. Beautiful hike once past the cutoff to Chasm lake. Reached chasm lake at 10:45. Fell asleep on a rock on Chasm lake while Brian wandered off to check the trail, woke up to black clouds and just a little bit later the lighting and thunder started. We booked it down the mountain to the truck, when we reached the truck at around 2:15 it started pouring, all the way back to Longmont.
