ktiffany22Route Climbed: Bear Lake trailhead, descent via Andrews Glacier Date Climbed: Summer 03  Sucess!

ktiffany22

Summited over Flattop first, then Hallet Peak, Otis, & half of Taylor (had to get someone in our group back for work:-(

My friends decided to "stay in the meadow by flattop and smell the flowers," so I RAN up Hallet Peak and Otis while they "skirted" by it.... oops, while I was boulder hopping on the way back down, one moved and I did a head first somersault down the mountain... good thing my knee crashed into a rock to prevent me going any further. Don't worry, a little bruise won't hurt me on this on... now a steeper mountain would have been treacherous! Good views from the top- enjoy!

I climbed the better than love route in the summer of 2001, but didn't summit. I guess after (8) pitches of rock it didn't seem very important! I finally stood on top 4/24/05 with Jason after an amazing Dragon's Tail Couloir climb!!

This was a windy day but luckily for us snowpack was low enough to avoid avalanche danger although a few nasty cornices existed

Great moderate day hike! Start early as everyone who started later than we did got hailed on big time at 2pm. We barely made it onto the shuttle in time! The last 400 foot scramble to the summit is great training for Longs Peak, and the view from the top is wonderful. The gentle western slopes of the Continental Divide look surreal from this vantage point.

Part of 4-day Divide traverse. Tons of fun, highly recommend a similar trip! Beautiful summer day in the park.

I did this mountain along with Flattop and ptarmigan point. This was a fairly easy accent except for the relentless winds that I experienced at the top (35 mph). It was kind of cool to see the clouds wizzing by while I sat back for a break at the summit. I couldnt really find a actual trail and there was frost on all the rocks, making them quite slippery. Other than that it was a enjoyable climb.

A classic in 'The Big Park' as my friend Steve calls Rocky Mountain National Park. Outstanding views of Longs Peak and good access to Otis Peak just to the south.

NelsonRoute Climbed: Tyndall Glacier & variations, Flattop Mtn trail Date Climbed: A dozen times or so, 1990-present, all seasons  Sucess!

Nelson

A great peak any time of year. Can be turned into a longer circular trip by ascending from the north and descending via Andrews Glacier (bring an axe if late in the season). My wife and I once arrived on the summit at 6:00 PM on a July 21 (her birthday). We had left Bear Lake at 1:00 PM with no destination in mind. One of those crystal clear days when there's no place better than Colorado!

Started out as a climb of Flattop Mtn, and since it was a nice day, decided to go for Halletts also. After years and years of seeing Halletts from Bear, Dream, and Emerald Lakes, it was great to actually be on the top. Great warm up for my first 14er the next week (Quandary).

I hiked Hallet Peak (Flattop, Tindall) early in the morning from Bear Lake. It was a sunny day. I truly enjoyed myself for it was an easy and very pleasant outing with great views of a marvellous scenery. Got to watch the elk for a while too!

I used Hallett as a warm-up and to acclimatize for Longs two days later. Besides that Hallett is a fun and worthwhile hike in and of itself.

mtnhiker13Route Climbed: Standard Route up/Tyndall Gorge Decent Date Climbed: August 10, 2002  Sucess!

mtnhiker13

We hike over Flattop mountain and then onto Hallett Peak. Unfortunately this was the day I decided to forget my hiking boots at home and was wearing Teva's in the car to the trailhead. I decided to do the hike anyway. The ascent was great - very comfortable. The decent was a little trickier down the Tyndall Gorge with all of the rocks, lack of trail and then the "wall". My feet were a little sore after that hike - made it a memorable hike. Awesome views of Longs Peak!

This was my first ever summit. I love this mountain and do it a few times a year. Great summit, and easy access to other mountains. A little crowded, but still a great spot.

This makes for a great trail run on a relatively easy trail to the top of Flattop and then on to Halletts Peak.

JoshRoute Climbed: Northcutt-Carter, Standard Walk-up Date Climbed: 1996, 1998  Sucess!

Josh

Fun climbing on the Northcutt-Carter (5.7, III -- one of the 50 CCs of NA). Climbed with a guy who talked like he had been doing multi-pitch trad for years. I figured the easy N-C route would be a good warmup for harder stuff, but at the top of Pitch 1, he started to untie his figure eight knot! I asked, "What are you doing?" He just stared at me with a blank expression. We continued up the climb and eventually topped out, but it was an interesting day...
