Ascent Trip Report

Continued from my Flattop Mountain trip report: After crossing above the Tyndall Glacier, I was able to find a trail of sorts leading up the west flanks of Hallett. Great views all around, from Grand Lake, the Never Summer Range, the Mummy Range, just amazing views. The route up was a bit of a scramble, but only 2nd class. On top, there was one other climber,who went down shortly, leaving me to hang out with the Pika and enjoy some Gatorade. I started down around 10:30 and was able to trail run the less rocky stretches. I was back to the car by 12:00.
