We were actually aiming for Hallet Peak, but ominous clouds turned us around as soon as we summitted Flattop. Oh well, next time!

Though the trail is all switchbacks, the grade agreed with us. With an early start we reached the top before 8:00am, making Hallett an easy add-on with perfect weather.

Enjoyed hike with my son to top - but his altitude sickness kept us from other peaks. Cloudy.

Scott PierceShould have had a glissade!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 2, 2007

Scott Pierce

Plenty o' fun in Dragons Tail Couloir.

But a painful, posthole descent in breakable crust overlaying crotch deep sludge which in turn obscured Flattop Trail. Since neither of us had ever been on the trail, we ended up bushwhacking large sections on top of everything else.

Next time, GLISSADE TYNDALL GLACIER! Especially stupid since I made my partner walk the best part of a mile in a gale to tag the 10-acre patch that passes for a summit block! Another 20 minutes and we could have been sliding for home like champs. Instead we post-holed down like chumps.

BritetteN Couloir from Lake Helene  Sucess!

Solo trip with ski goals. Climbed and descended (beautiful powder) a couloir on north side. Spent a lot of time looking for the summit. Its flat up there.

KruckGreat hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 28, 2007


May 2007: The trail has a superb grade. Not too steep, not too flat. Hip-high snow was mushy by 11 a.m. with severe off-trail postholing. 15 minutes to the top and blown off by 10 a.m. lightning. Spring mountain weather. Gotta love it.

Oct. 2007: ... Returned en route to Hallett. High wind from the west. Ranger station posted 29 mph w/ gusts above 40 mph. I believe it. Snow was hard enough to make for good travel where it hadn't alll blown away.

Hiked on my way home to Texas (from Utah). Loved the boulder garden on the way up. Wanted to climb Hallet Peak, but I saw a storm coming in (it started raining the minute I hit the parking lot.)

thebeave7Fall Hike in the Clouds
Date Climbed: Oct 7, 2006


Intended to keep going on to Knobtop and Gabletop, but thick clouds, 30mph winds, 30degree temps and the fear of snow/rain turned me back at Flattop. Oh well, it's nice to be out.

The first of 7 on the way to Chiefs Head. A nice loop hike, though can't say much for this "peak" if you can call it that.
