Climbed this after Flattop, Hallett, and Otis. Doing this put me beyond the last bus from the Bear Lake TH to the park n ride though, so I had to walk back to my car after the hike was over, making it a roughly twenty mile day. Ten hour day altogether, but much of it spent on a great ridge line.
07/14 w/Cory Martin
Started around 5:30AM. Trail already carved out to Sky Pond. Crampons and ice axe helpful for bottom of couloir. Sun warmed the upper section. Lots of loose snow avalanches seen on Taylor Peak, Taylor Glacier, and Powell Snowfields during ascent. Followed Continental Divide to climb Taylor, Otis, Hallett, and Flattop as well. Back at car around 3:45PM.
With Matt C.
Continental Divide traverse from Flattop to Powell and back down Flattop trail to Bear Lake.
This climb just went on forever and ever.
Up Andrews down flattop.
Via the southeast face.
Great route. 5.6-5.7 in crampons was fun.
Caught sunrise on Taylor. Views to the East are incredible.
In soft snow with Lee, Hillary and Kristi
Via Andrews glacier, as a consolation prize. The boulders were slow with 6" of soft snow on them, but the view of Long's was awesome.
Nice hike from Flattop, bit a windy. Great view of Longs Peak.
Met some Polish guys on top, very nice and inquisitive
Pretty much alone on a beautiful day
Climbed the steep Taylor Glacier and summited Powell, Taylor & Otis before heading down Andrews Glacier. Great snow climb and awesome views.
Combined with Powell
