Ascent Trip Report

Great trail all the way to the base of Hallet. Then boulder hop to the top ~250 vertical. Fabulous view of Long's Peak to the SE. Huge group from Christian College just ahead of us. Very nice people, but unfamiliar with mountains, many in cotton, w/o backpacks.

Tyndall Glacier barely still there. Looks like a possble ski descent, maybe 45deg on top, but flattens considerably towards bottom
