HalikuDragon's Tail Couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 23, 2006

Haliku

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.

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.

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 climbed this with my summit post friend "asphazell" on a windy day in April. We wore snowshoes up Flattop as well as Hallett Peak that day, gotta, love the Rockies :)

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!

Kiefer

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!

mountainsurferRoute Climbed: a snow filled gulley southeast of the Ptarmingen Glacier Date Climbed: October 6, 2005  Sucess!
The wind was blowing, snow was falling, avalance danger that I avoided, but I cramponed my butt to the top with a cool 15 foot vertical ice wall - old snow that was ice, climb at the end at the top of the gully . Glad that it was the first big snowfall of the season. Good test of Winter mouuntaineering skills.

It also helped that two buck elk were at the top welcoming me to the continental divide.

I have used this mountain so many times to summit other great peaks in the park, such as Hallets, Otis, Taylor, Powell, Notchtop, Knobtop, Gabletop, and Sprague Mountain. The hike from Bear Lake to Grand Lake over Flattop is also a good hike, but too much downhill for me.

Crossed Flattop after Bighorn Flats on Continental Divide traverse from Milner Pass to Bear Lake. At this point (~4pm) storms chased us across Flattop and down to treeline.
