We wanted to get out and sample the alpine rock offerings in Rocky Mountain National Park, so we set our sights on the classic “Better Than Love” route on Hallett Peak. The route was moderate, especially in the lower sections, and ended with a stellar vertical face. Route-finding was ambiguous, as with most mountain routes, but we made our way without major difficulty. Protection was good but not frequent, especially on the upper sections. All in all it was a great moderate route, but not one for the first-time alpine rock climber. It took us about 14 hours from car-to-car.
