I was originally going to do a loop of Charleston, going up the North Loop from Trail Canyon, then down the South Loop, but I had a little bit of a head cold and didn't know if I wanted to hike that far, so I decided on Griffith Peak as the consolation. Started around 0745 and headed up South Loop. It was about 30 degrees, but did not feel that cold since there was no wind. I made good time up the steep climb, and when I got to the turn to Griffith, I was feeling pretty good, and decided to head over to Charleston instead. Pleasant walk along the ridge; I had not been up there since before the fire a few years ago, and the lack of trees opened up the views a lot. The final half mile to the summit was slow, and I took a short break at the top, then headed back down. It was in the 30's most of the day, but I only wore a long sleeve shirt all day, only getting cold enough for gloves in the shade of the switchbacks on the way back down. Finished up at 1615, earlier than I thought I would.
