0 to 12k  Sucess!

Going from O to 12k kicked me in the rear but it was worth it.

Where is the summit?  Sucess!

Hiked from TH to summit via the standard trail in 1:30 hrs. Couldn't tell where the 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 (3:00) before descending, with a RT time of 4:20 hrs. Nice trail!

Not really a mountain  Sucess!

Ran from Bear lake up in 1:18 and down in 44 minutes for a total of 2:02. This is not really a mountain, but Hallets is pretty close and that looked interesting.

Meh  Sucess!

I really consider this part of Hallett, but whatever.

Flat Top Pass?  Sucess!

Shouldn't this be considered a pass instead of a peak? Climbing over this "peak" is the easiest way to get across the continental divide for miles. Hiked up and over it to get to the more interesting stuff.

What a day!  Sucess!

Climbed this with Hallett Peak after a previous nights snow that left some interesting conditions for the trip. The trail (what you could see of it) was ice and probably 75% of it was covered in drifts. What an awesome hike it was up in snowy and windy conditions. By the time we came back down much of the trail was unveiled from the June sun. Hallett was even better!

Hiked with Hallet  Sucess!

Easy combo with Hallet makes for a nice day in the Park.

Overrated  Sucess!

Flattop is pretty overrated in the Rocky Mountain National Park. Lot of talk about it but it's average compared to some of it's fun nieghbour peaks. Hallets is the real deal!

Flattop  Sucess!

Good winter hike. Prepare for wind.

Almost missed it  Sucess!

passed over it while backpacking in the park, not much of a 'summit'

Great climb  Sucess!

My buddy Jay and I climbed Flattop when passing through Colorado on a cross-country trip. Perfect weather, great hike, unforgettable trip.

Just found I had hiked this for sure!  Sucess!

I was scanning my slides from 1975 last night and found Flattop among them. Even had some snow still that July!

Always a new way up  Sucess!

I love this featureless summit. Its a doorway to so many great adventures.

Going Up  Sucess!

Lost track of how many times up this trail. Now that I think about it, have I ever found the summit?

well-trodden-tourist-track  Sucess!

Escaped the rainy day on the Front Range and hiked up above the (lower) cloud deck to find the Continental Divide nice and dry, and actually warmer than the moist, miserable weather below. A quick jaunt over to Hallet from here to catch a sweet view of the Divide above the clouds.

Backpacking  Sucess!

Nabbed it while backpacking. Probably one of the least satisfying peaks I've seen, but hey, it's a mountain. The view is nice, but you can get the same view anywhere in that general area.

On the way to Hallet  Sucess!

We climbed it on our way to Hallet Peak. It was extremely cold on Flattop and my uncle had to wait here with a marmot.

From Bear Lake TH  Sucess!

Hiked up the trail and over the seriously flat top of this mountain. Where is the actual summit?? Then on to Hallett Peak.

Easy start to a long day above timberline  Sucess!

Nice, early start meant I saw no one on the trail on the way up or summit. Then to Ptarmigan Pt, Sprague Mtn (by mistake!) and finally Knobtop Mtn. Long day, perfect weather!
