PellucidWombatWhere is the summit?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2009


Hiked from TH to summit via the standard trail in 1:30 hrs. Couldn't tell where the summit actually was, so I cut off from the trail junction to climb Hallet (2-2:30), and then back across the plateau to climb Ptarmigan Pt (3:00) before descending, with a RT time of 4:20 hrs. Nice trail!

IsaiahNot really a mountain  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2009


Ran from Bear lake up in 1:18 and down in 44 minutes for a total of 2:02. This is not really a mountain, but Hallets is pretty close and that looked interesting.

I really consider this part of Hallett, but whatever.

dirthFlat Top Pass?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2009


Shouldn't this be considered a pass instead of a peak? Climbing over this "peak" is the easiest way to get across the continental divide for miles. Hiked up and over it to get to the more interesting stuff.

mtwashingtonmonroeWhat a day!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 16, 2009


Climbed this with Hallett Peak after a previous nights snow that left some interesting conditions for the trip. The trail (what you could see of it) was ice and probably 75% of it was covered in drifts. What an awesome hike it was up in snowy and windy conditions. By the time we came back down much of the trail was unveiled from the June sun. Hallett was even better!

Easy combo with Hallet makes for a nice day in the Park.

ash80Overrated  Sucess!


Flattop is pretty overrated in the Rocky Mountain National Park. Lot of talk about it but it's average compared to some of it's fun nieghbour peaks. Hallets is the real deal!

Date Climbed: Jul 1, 1998


My buddy Jay and I climbed Flattop when passing through Colorado on a cross-country trip. Perfect weather, great hike, unforgettable trip.

silversummitJust found I had hiked this for sure!  Sucess!


I was scanning my slides from 1975 last night and found Flattop among them. Even had some snow still that July!

I love this featureless summit. Its a doorway to so many great adventures.

Date Climbed: Sep 13, 2004


Lost track of how many times up this trail. Now that I think about it, have I ever found the summit?

Escaped the rainy day on the Front Range and hiked up above the (lower) cloud deck to find the Continental Divide nice and dry, and actually warmer than the moist, miserable weather below. A quick jaunt over to Hallet from here to catch a sweet view of the Divide above the clouds.

Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2008


Nabbed it while backpacking. Probably one of the least satisfying peaks I've seen, but hey, it's a mountain. The view is nice, but you can get the same view anywhere in that general area.

Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2003


We climbed it on our way to Hallet Peak. It was extremely cold on Flattop and my uncle had to wait here with a marmot.

Hiked up the trail and over the seriously flat top of this mountain. Where is the actual summit?? Then on to Hallett Peak.

KAmmermanEasy start to a long day above timberline  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2008
Nice, early start meant I saw no one on the trail on the way up or summit. Then to Ptarmigan Pt, Sprague Mtn (by mistake!) and finally Knobtop Mtn. Long day, perfect weather!
