My wife and I had a very pleasant hike to the summit. We had a snack on boulders overlooking Tindal glacier, and decided to pass on a scramble up to the summit of Hallet (maybe next year).

Second time on Flattop on route to a second summit of Hallett. I made my first winter visit to RMNP this past April (2005) and would like to make Flattop my first winter ascent on my next visit.

The early overcast that I worried about on the ascent burned off and revealed a sunny and calm summit. Ascended via the right side of Tyndall Glacier and descended on the standard trail. Great Day!

It is definately appropriately named...the summit is HUGE and FLAT! Went on to climb Hallett. Will be back for these two for some good snow routes!

broke trail in fresh snow all the way up! The clouds broke open just as we reached the top and closed back up on us just as we turned to come down.

Summited Flattop, Halletts Peak, Otis, and half of Taylor- had to leave early to hurry back down to get someone in our group to work.... note to self, take own vehicle next time so as to not be rushed out of the mountains- it was too beautiful to be RUNNING down!

I climbed the middle couloir (or finger) with crampons and ice ax. Found some ice mid-August but mostly could avoid it. Wonderful snow conditions altogether. Boy, was it steep! You surely don't want to fall - no runout. Great route description here. 3:50 a.m. start from Glacier Basin Campground, topped out at around 10 a.m. then also visited Ptarmigan Point and Hallett Peak, descended the trail and reached Bear Lake at 1 p.m.

Great moderate half day hike!!! Going the additional .3 miles and 400 ft elevation to Hallett Peak is very well worth the effort. The tundra is EXPANSIVE in this area of the divide!

A friend and I went up this for his first snow climb of the year. What a great route! We carried only crampons and ice axes. There is no need for any pro as long as you feel comfortable with your snow climbing skills. I am already excited to do the dragons tooth next

We reached the summit after battling through waist deep snow on the way up. Did not use any snowshoes due to our experience on the way to Glass Pond 4 days earlier. When we reached the summit the weather seemed to turn bad for a short time. However, once we started to descent, the sun returned. Great day!!

Intended to solo hike Flattop and Hallett. Got to summit of Flattop, about 3:30 or 4:00 , wind and cold began to assault summit.Took some pictures and turned around. Once back down to the rock outcropping, that is the 12000 ft point, the weather improved. Did not feel like repeating the postholing procedure.

Easy hike in the summer. Tried the Ptarmigan fingers during the winter, high winds forced retreat.
