Great views for more than half of this hike! I finished this on Sunday 9/9 and even though it was a super warm day the summit of Flattop and Hallet were VERY windy. The weather/season is definitely changing, so it is time to start packing gloves, beanies, extra layers etc. The views from Hallet are much better than on the top of Flattop so if you have about 30 more minutes of push in you it’s worth the extra mileage. I summited Flattop in 2.15 and by 2.40 I was at the top of Hallet, RT was about 5 hours. Aspens are changing which is always a plus!
