This is an organizational entry for the Tyndall Gorge to assist with clarity in the database.
Once on the eastern side of RMNP, drive to the end of the Bear Lake Rd. Occasionally, this road will be closed due to snow clearing efforts. Hike 1.8 miles to Emerald Lake. Skirt the lake on the S/left side towards the obvious large rock buttress (900' tall). Note, there is a buried talus field here under all the snow. Hike up to the base. Expect at least a 75 minute approach. You'll gain probably 1500'.

Like all Hallett routes, difficulty will depend on how much snow is sticking to the rock, or blocking your path. The final pitch is the crux.
