Summited...sorta

Climbed in spectacular weather but there was a lot of snow. Hunted around for the summit marker for about an hour...no dice. Felt like the top though!

Great hike..even though my hiking boot blew out on the way down.  Sucess!

Great hike! Had lunch behind the boulders where I looked down and found a penny! Must have been a popular place to sit sheltered from the wind. Want to do this hike again. Hiked on up Hallet as well...outstanding views all along this hike.

Right couloir  Sucess!

Climbed the couloir right of the Dragon Tail. Dragon tail had deep snow and some concern over avalanche. The cornice was huge. After topping out, went to other side, descended and then climbed the leftmost couloir on the Northwest side.

Flattop - Ptarmigan Pt - Hallett - Otis  Sucess!

From Bear Lake, hiked up Flattop Mtn, Ptarmigan Pt, Hallett Pk, and Otis Pk, descending Andrews Glacier. Three separate boulders separated by a couple hundred feet were candidates for the high point. I measured the elevation of the top of each boulder several times and determined the central boulder to be the high point. I first hiked Flattop Mtn with my father circa 1980.

"Warmup" Hike  Sucess!

Hiked this to get better acclimatized for Elbert 2 days later. Got stormed on in the process, but ended up making it to the featureless summit. The views are worth it though.
