Chasm Lake sits in a deep cirque at the base of Mt. Lady Washington towards the north and Longs Peak towards the west. The famous east-facing wall of Longs Peak, known as the "Diamond", rises more than 2,400 feet above this incredibly stunning and dramatic alpine lake. Looking towards the south is 13,911-foot Mt. Meeker. The Keyboard of the Winds is also visible from this vantage point. Much of the shoreline around the lake is accessible, however, some minor rock scrambling is required to reach the final destination

Meet at Coors tek parking lot (across from CMC bldg.) just prior to 6 am for a 6:00 AM departure.
