Flattop - Ptarmigan Pt - Hallett - Otis  Sucess!

From Bear Lake, hiked up Flattop Mtn, Ptarmigan Pt, Hallett Pk, and Otis Pk, descending Andrews Glacier. Great view of The Sharkstooth from the summit.

Backup Plan  Sucess!

Arrived at Andrews pass around 1 and it looked like storms were going to be rolling in so instead of heading up the Sharkstooth and Taylor we made a quick jaunt up Otis and headed down Andrews glacier. Nice views. Beautiful hike back down to Bear Lake TH.

Via Andrews Glacier  Sucess!

Climbed in icy conditions up the glacier. The glacier was covered in hard black and blue ice. Descended into Chaos Canyon (not recommended). Took a nasty fall that probably would have broken my back had I not had my pack on my back. FUN TIMES!!! YEAH!

Re: Via Andrews Glacier

i came down Andrews a few weeks ago unprepared. had little slip that turned into an uncontrolled yet fun decent. i can't imagine a tumble down chaos canyon.

FHOT  Sucess!

I've only climbed this one once, and really enjoyed the view to the east down the valley.

From Hallett Peak  Sucess!

This was my third summit of the day (Hallett and Flattop). These three summits are frequently hiked together. Descended Andrews Glacier. It was just one of those days were you felt strong all day. I sometimes wonder how I can replicate what I ate and the circumstances the day before to have that feeling all the time.

Route: Chaos Canyon/Chaotic Glacier, descent Andrews  Sucess!

Chaos canyon isn't as bad as it sounds (but I wouldn't use it as a descent route). Some rock-hopping just above lake Haiyaha. Minimal snow available to still make it really fun, but a great loop. Highly recommended - 8 hrs RT at a leisurely pace. Ice axe and crampons needed for Chaos glacier, approx. 40%. Wanted to tag Halletts too, but had to be back down by 3, so just Otis today. Super fun glissade down Andrews to the lake! Breathtaking views on the CD!

boulder hell  Sucess!

hiked after flattop and hallett. jamie and i were having a nice day until the descent off otis. got cliffed out everywhere before finding safe passage to the basin. from there, a boulder-hopping/climbing through nightmare ensued and we hiked out a couple hours after dark. went back the next day to retrieve her lost gloves(found them!).

11 year old Conqueror  Sucess!

My 11 year old son summited via Andrews Glacier - the last part was rough for him but after he signed the register he was on cloud nine, boot skiing down Andrews.

From Flattop  Sucess!

Nice little 12er, very dramatic. Hit as part of a loop from Flattop to Powell.

FH and O  Sucess!

I think most of us who worked at the Y-camp in Estes did this combo.

Attempted via Andrews glacier, turned around below the glacier after getting lost and burning too much time. Doh!
