sshankleRoute Climbed: Love to Better Than Love Date Climbed: August 7, 2005  Sucess!


Holy cow, what a climb.

Being more of a mountaineer than a hard core rock climber, this this was great! Challenging, exposed, BIG, alpine... WOW. Did I mention that this is a BIG wall...

What a day.

5:30AM to 4:30PM car-to-car.

Outstanding views in all directions. Longs dominates with a perfect view of the keyboard of the winds. Neversummer and Mummy ranges look close enough to touch, the Gores and even Rabbit Ears distant on the horizon.

I had planned on doing Otis, but decided to continue to Hallett instead. What a beautiful day! I'll definetly be back. The Park was a complete zoo by the time I made my descent at around 11am.

Foxy Long BottomsRoute Climbed: The Great Dihedral Date Climbed: 8/04

Foxy Long Bottoms

Completed the route but did not continue to the summit via another route. Clouds forming above caused us to make the decision to descend, which was a good one. At the start of rap # 1, we were drenched. Storms move in real fast up there! Great climb regardless.

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


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!

coloradoiceclimberRoute Climbed: Better Than Love Route & From Flattop Mtn. Date Climbed: April 24, 2005  Sucess!


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!


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!

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.
