Ascent Trip Report

I'd been to Flattop before, but had always wanted to do Hallett. I was hoping I started late enough in the day, only a few hours before sunset, to escape any thunderstorms. For the most part I was right. Until shortly after treeline, when I spotted one coming in from the north. I high tailed it back, getting hailed on and occasional rumbling as I ran through the trees. The hike was still beautiful, though. Views down into Dream and Emerald Lakes are quite amazing.
