Description

This is an organizational entry for the Tyndall Gorge to assist with clarity in the database.

Hallett Peak is probably better known as a moderate, close-in, backcountry, alpine crag. Once, it had the aura of a difficult Norwand. During the colder months (most of the year), certain freeze-thaw cycles can align to create a variety of interesting mixed lines here. In addition, the shoulder seasons can provide some snow routes. Probably the most famous route here is Hallett Chimney. This was listed in G. Randall's 1983 Vertigo Games with a wonderful shot of Dick Jackson on the FA of the route. Since, it has become an almost Grail-like goal for the mixed-Colorado-aficienado. Subsequently, others have quietly sought devious, mixed adventures on this playground.

Getting There

Approach from the Bear Lake Trailhead. Hike/ski/snowshoe/wallow to Emerald Lake. Continue carefully around the west-ish side of the lake. There are some sections that can run.
