After the previous weekend we were intent on finding a north-facing couloir to climb - we found one on the north side of Flattop Mountain in Rocky Mountain National Park. According to Gillett, Flattop Gully saw its first ascent by Topher Donahue only 7 years ago in 1999. It surprised me that such a fun route on such a popular mountain had seen so few ascents - add us to the list!

Hey thanks. A bunch of us are getting together June 10th for a mellow climb in RMNP and then some beers at the Estes Park Brew Fest. It would be cool to see you there. Check out this thread for more details: http://www.summitpost.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=19499&highlight=spring+gathering
