Rsk8r4lifRoute Climbed: i have no idea Date Climbed: june 22, 2005  Sucess!
I started out to climb longs peak, but i've never climbed a mountain before, my friend that was w/ me left at the juction and i took the wrong route, i ended up at chasm lake, and knew if i climbed over mt lady washington to the other side i'd get to the boulderfield, so i spent an hour or so clinging on over chasm lake with extremely strong winds, so much that i had to crawl across the summit so i wouldn't blow off, it was sorta fun. does anyone know what class climbing that is on the east side of chasm lake right up the side of lady washington?

Originally planning on a hike to Chasm Lake, I climbed this miserable heap of talus when my partner was sketched by steep snow on the approach to the Longs/Meeker cirque. The view of The Diamond from on top put me back in the right frame of mind though. Was blessed with absolute stillness on the summit; a trip report had people being blown off just days earlier.

Stunning blue skies today as we summited in about 3 hrs 15 min. We were able to avoid all snow on the summit pitch with some judicious route-picking and some scrambling. Glad we didn't carry the snowshoes!

jrfRoute Climbed: East Ridge w/ North Ridge descent Date Climbed: May 22, 2005  Sucess!


I'd been looking forward to this for a while so I could take pictures of the Diamond. Views are unreal from the top. A lot of patchy snow left which made the East Ridge a tough slog but finally made the top in about 4 hours.

North Ridge is much nicer going down (and I'd guess coming up).

Climbed with Charles. Awesome views, good weather. Met two skiers who had just completed a ski descent of the Cables route.

Great climb in perfect weather. Snow was getting pretty soft and slushy on the descent. Best "sudden reveal" summit view I've ever seen. Wow!

A great day in the mountains! The view of the Diamond was awesome. Snowshoes/ Ice Axe/ Crampons were helpful on the ascent.

This was a great little scramble to a nice 13, but honestly the climb was dwarfed by the menacing Longs Peak on the horizon. It was super windy when we summited which made for a brief and cool stay for a couple of pictures, then back down past the chippies.

I've wanted to climb this mountain for a long time solely for the view of The Diamond. I was not disappointed! I descended directly to Chasm Lake, which was quite interesting and afforded sustained, excellent views.

definitely worth the short scramble from the Boulderfield. The view of the East Face of Longs Peak from here is spectacular.

RyanSRoute Climbed: East Slopes Date Climbed: April 17, 2004  Sucess!


I don't think I'd recommend the East Slopes route when the snow is unconsolidated and somewhat slushy. Postholing our way to the summit wasn't all that fun. But that view of The Diamond when Erin and I got there was amazing and made all our effort worth it. We descended the much gentler North Ridge toward Granite Pass and took a 250' glissade down into the basin. We endured more postholing while we moved through Jim's Grove, but after that we had a great time slipping and sliding our way back to the trailhead. Rather than taking the East Slopes, try heading to Granite Pass and ascending the North Ridge. Going that way, this is a highly recommended winter/spring climb!

Good winter climb.

ChrisRoute Climbed: Ascend the west slopes, descend the east slopes Date Climbed: July 2002  Sucess!


Hit this on the way down from an ascent of Long's. Barely made it off before a huge storm hit. Ran to treeline just as huge hailstorm w/ lightning began. Bad idea in hindsight :-)

Incredible views of the Diamond on Longs from the summit. Almost got blown off by an amazingly strong gust of wind one day!

A nice training climb and/or enchainment with other peaks.

A straightforward walk up on snow. View of Longs from the summit was amazing.

NelsonRoute Climbed: Up from Chasm Lake cutoff, down the other side Date Climbed: May 2003, most recently  Sucess!


As stated, maybe an unimpressive looking mountain, but sitting in one of the most impressive places in Colorado! Great views of many classic mountaineering routes on Longs and Meeker. Well worth the hike, any season.
