A short but sweet descent of one of the last remaining glaciers in RMNP, in one of the park's most beautiful settings.

Need to Know

In typical winter and early spring conditions, the Tyndall Glacier is very prone to slab avalanche conditions. There are regularly fresh crowns and avalanche debris on all sides of this cirque.

Description

Tyndall Glacier is a 1500' long run down one of the last remaining glaciers in RMNP. The slope angle ranges from low 30 degrees to up to 50 degrees. While climbing up the glacier is an approach option, the easiest and most scenic option is likely the Flattop Mountain approach.
