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.

Windy  Sucess!

Made it to the top under some harsh wind. I t was brutal above tree line, gust wind in some spots around 50 mph, visibility very poor.

foggy  Sucess!

Foggy day. Also went to the summit of Hallett. Got back in time to watch the Super Bowl.

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.

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!

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.
