windy and wonderful  Sucess!

After climbing Flattop, we ate lunch and then summited Hallet. It was worth the effort. Awesome views. Great day hike. Was pretty windy at the top that day.

Windy! Fun Trip!  Sucess!

Fun hike with lots to explore. Glaciers provided a nice break from the wind, and combined with a hop over to Ptarmigan Point, this made a good outing.

Great First Outing in RMNP  Sucess!

Great Dihedral (5.7), Finch Route (5.8), then boulder hopping to the top. We saw a 5 and 7-year-old at the top with their mom and dad. They'd done the entire trail on their own feet and were still chasing butterflies at the summit! Cute little things.

Never take the standard route  Sucess!

A little improv and spontaneous decision making turned into an incredible day. From Bear Lake to Lake Haiyaha, up an unknown couloir to Hallett, and then down Tyndall...after some serious winds that is. An awesome partner made this one of the best trips ever.

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!

Via Flattop  Sucess!
