HA  Sucess!

a bit of a nav mishap turned out to be all goodness.. ended up at Lake Haiyaha and blazing trail up to some interesting looking cooley.. from the map looks like we were in chaos canyon.. once topped out realized we werent in tyndall gorge as planned :0
but all good.. booted up hallets, scrambled down the backside in uncivilized wind, I was taken off my feet more than once. Headed over to Flattop, dropped in Tyndall Glacier and made some well earned turns all the way to Emerald Lake.. then Flattop Trail out.. DAMN FINE DAY!

foggy  Sucess!

Foggy day. No view at all from the summit. Still fun though. Got back to Boulder 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. Most people's image of Hallett Pk is of the vertical north face rising above Emerald Lake. The north face is actually just part of a long ridge that runs northeast for over a mile from Hallett's summit.

Tyndall Glacier  Sucess!

Ascent via Tyndall Glacier. My first snow climb! Had a thunderstorm roll through about 2/3 the way up the glacier that scared the daylights out of me, but the rest of the day was very nice. It's a grueling hike from Emerald Lake to the base of the glacier, but a great feeling to be deep in the park away from the standard trails.

Nice easy peak  Sucess!

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 (3:00) before descending, with a RT time of 4:20 hrs. Nice trail!

4th of July Sidetrip  Sucess!

Took a quick side trip and hiked over from flattop on our way north and across the divide. Good views, looks like there are some really fun routes on this guy.

My inspiration  Sucess!

I can't remember the route but I hiked this with my family on vacation quite some time ago, I was maybe 11 years old and unacclimated, made for an interesting but nauseating summit. The experience apparently had an enormous effect on me considering I returned to live in Colorado some 16 years later!

Beautiful Mountain

Once you climb Flat top, you might as well climb this peak.

via Flattop  Sucess!

Left miserable front range weather behind to find the Continental Divide drier and warmer, high above the up-sloping weather pattern. The views of the Divide with clouds filling the valleys below was pretty neat.

Standard Route-Bear Lake TH  Sucess!

After walking over Flattop Mt. I headed up and over Hallett Peak. It looks so much different from this side and has very little of the "peak" like qualities you see from Bear Lake.

Cold  Sucess!

It was so cold when we got above timberline that half of our party had to throw in the towel. I'm sure the views were great but I was to busy hiding behind the summit wind block.

Unnamed and Classic  Sucess!

Enjoyed a superb, unnamed route with DB, Aaron and Ram. Ram pieced the route together some 15 years ago and displayed it to us as a top-quality, highly memorable and altogether classic class 4-5 scramble. Great, great, great stuff. Then on to Otis.
