We did a traverse of Flattop, Ptarmigan Point, Notchtop, Knobtop, and Gabletop. We started from Bear Lake and descended through Tourmaline Gorge to Odessa Lake and then to Fern Lake trailhead.

This is an example of naming anything that looks like a pile of rocks...cuz that's what it is...a small pile of rocks.

Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2011


Guided Chicago buddy of mine up Flattop. He was utterly wasted, so I had to settle on a quick jog over to this point for some privacy and to burn off some steam. Always love this area. Great photos of the Notchtop and Helene from the back side.

We always skip this summit for other things, but today we finally made the stop.

Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2010


Added this to Flattop and Hallet on a sunny, rain-free day. Lots of wind, but Ptarmigan provided a good sanctuary, wonderful views of the lakes below, and lots of alpine privacy.

Date Climbed: Sep 26, 2009


From Bear Lake, hiked up Flattop Mtn, Ptarmigan Pt, Hallett Pk, and Otis Pk, descending Andrews Glacier. The wind was freezing and relentless for the 3+ hours that I was on the Continental Divide. That sort of thing doesn't bother me, though. Bring it on!

PellucidWombatNice Easy Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2009


Hiked from TH to summit via the standard trail over Flat Top's summit (1:30 hrs). Couldn't tell where Flat Top's 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 via up and down the fun cl. 3 bump on its W slopes (3:00) before descending, with a RT time of 4:20 hrs. Nice trail!

Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2008
A quick hike from Ptarmigan Pass to the top, where three bighorn sheep peered over at me before running away. Great views of Hallet and Otis from the top.

Hit Ptarmigan along with other peaks north of Flattop one fine July morning. Nice day among the marmots.

Decided to grab Ptarmigan after "flattening" out of Flattop. I had fun marveling at the drop offs and the snow. Oh yeah, granite will indeed bite you!

Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2007


I caught Ptarmigan after ascending Tyndall Glacier to Flattop. It was a beautiful day with an elk herd on top of the Divide. Looks like some alpine bouldering fun could be had on the way up to Ptarmigan.

Skirted over this to get a better view of Cracktop from the flats. God-awfully hot day despite all the snow. One of the few times I wished there was wind!

I'd hiked by this point a couple of times, but since I was working on climbing all of the named summits in Rocky Mountain National Park I went back to make it official.
