trekkerStandard Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2006


Hoping to do this with Hallet. Started in rain from Bear Lake, which stopped, but clouds were ominous. Reports from a couple groups descending said it was high winds and nasty on top. Bailed at 12,ooo'. I should have waited for a while, it all blew over by the time I was back in my vehicle at Bear Lake.

Edit: Had better luck on Aug. 11, 2007. Great weather, lots of people, combined this with a visit to Hallett Peak.

Wandered up the snow, don't know if it was the "standard" trail. Beautiful day by myself - only met a couple other people.

Date Climbed: Apr 23, 2006


We skinned most of the way up, but had to take the skis off in spots. While the Dragon's Tail is calling, we opted for a tammer first outing on wild snow w/ new gear. We found perfect weather that day, and perfect snow on the north side.

Date Climbed: Apr 23, 2006


We (rkymtn) had an enjoyable outing on what was a beautiful climb in all aspects. The snow allowed for easy step kicking. The surrounding views are great.

Haliku and I enjoyed the ascent of the Dragon's Tail Couloir before heading to the summit and on to Hallett Peak. Snow conditions were great for kicking steps and the weather was equally nice. Overall, the climb was easy with a minor rock crux towards the top of the left couloir branch.

PenningtonFlattop Summit  Sucess!


Should have gone for the two 'fer, with Hallets. Went around Hallet's and came down Tyndall ( I think??? ) glacier. Returned back to Bear Lake trailhead via the Loch. Long day. Would love to get back and do it again.

Date Climbed: Apr 21, 2006


Climbed Dragon's Tail with a ski descent. Didn't actually stand on the true summit, but it's an easy hike from the top of the couloir, so I'll consider it bagged for now. I'm sure I'll cross the true summit some time soon. Trip report is on the Flattop page.

I'd been over Flattop several times previously, but didn't record the dates. This was the first time I officially counted Flattop Mountain on my peak list. I went up Flattop, Hallet, Otis, and Ptarmigan Point this day.

An easy hike with jaw-dropping views of Hallets, Longs, and all of RMNP! Should have bagged Hallets, but I guess that gives me an excuse to go back!

Been up this mountain a few times actually. I used to have a yearly trip that involved hiking from Bear Lake to Kawaneechee visitor centre and through big meadows. Since Flattop mtn. is on the way, it's a nice side trip!
