Been on this mountain many times while climbing other peaks along the Continental Divide. Short and simple.

Otis, Hallett, Flattop  Sucess!

Made a roundtrip from Bear Lake Trailhead via Otis (east ridge), Hallett and Flattop. Clear and sunny, but strong and cold wind on the summit. Great day though :)

A long time ago  Sucess!

Reached summit in mist - and then had to run for it when an electric storm appeared - the first time I experienced a storm making my hair stand on end (back in the days when I had hair).

Fnally, after all these years!  Sucess!

Guided by my friend, Nelson, who's done this one many times before. Much snow in the trees above the Odessa Lake junction. Beautiful day !! No storms but much wind on top. Snow still covers all ranges that are visible from the summit-Gore, Flattops, Never Summers and Mummies.
A great day to be up there!!

First Mountain I Hiked Up in Colorado   Sucess!

It was one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever been on. It is almost surreal. I took some of the most beautiful pictures I have ever taken there. It looks like a postcard! The day we went was absolutely incredible. Very few clouds, light winds, nice temperature, and the sky was such a vibrant blue. This is a great mountain to get your start on. It is not a cake walk, but not extremely difficult either.

Flattop Mountain  Sucess!

Great trek. If you hike to Flattop Mountain press on to Hallett Peak and enjoy the wider perspective/view.

Nice Day out  Sucess!

Traverse of Flat top, Hallett and Otis and decend down Andrews Glacier to the Loche. Was a very rewarding day since all my regular climbing buddies were working and couldn't do anything more technical. Turned out to be a great day in the mountains.
