Ascent Trip Report

I hiked to the Mills Moraine/Chasm Lake junction, then climbed directly up to the top. Then I went down the north side to Granite Pass and returned via the Longs Peak Trail. I started at 6 AM, reached the summit around 9:30, and got back at 12:30 PM. Absolutely no one else was climbing MLW, everybody was headed for Longs (I was a little tempted to go for Longs myself). There are a lot of spiders in the talus. The sky was clear at the start, but clouds built up surprisingly quickly, and by the time I got down past Granite Pass, it was cloudy and raining a little.
