Details

Well known Chasm Lake sits at the base of the awe inspiring east face of Foueteener Longs Peak in RMNP.   The leader last visited here 25 years ago so I am declaring this trip exploratory.  Although the stats indicate a C hike, previous entrys in the CMC trip database list this as a difficult B so I go with that.  Apparently the trail from Longs Peak TH is good all the way except for some easy scrambling approaching the lake.   October could see good fall weather or an early winter blast and if the forecast is bad I will substitute a lower elevation hike near Allenspark (which I plan to list in mid October anyway).
