Description

This submission was originally part of single listing for Flattop. Due to reorganizational effort, this was split into 2 sections. The first is here.

In a fine little drainage between Hallett Peak and Flattop mountain, you will find a multitude of rock and snow/ice routes. There are many possible routes up and down Flattop (due north), Hallett (due south), and Andrew's Glacier (west).

For the purposes of organization, we'll limit this subarea to those mixed/ice routes on the southern aspect of the mountain which are approached from the Emerald Lake area.

There are at least 8 distinct routes and 2 variations here including:

Tyndall Glacier, WI2 M2
Dragontail Couloir, WI2 M2
Dragon Tooth aka Tower Gully, M2 mod snow
Flang, WI5 M5
various SE Face routes, up to 5.7 WI 2.

Getting There

Park at the Bear Lake Parking lot (newly renovated) at the end of Bear Lake Road. Hike to Emerald Lake. Skirt the lake and head up and right toward Flattop.
