Still the scariest storm I've been in above treeline in my years of hiking. Great views though, especially of Deer Mountain across the way.

climbed massive via its east ridge with mike. yesterday's pre-stopped trench gave way to horrid, fluffy trailbreaking all the way to treeline. we were beat there, but sucked it up and slugged our way to the summit. a great feeling!

East Ridge from the Fish Hatchery trailhead with shanahan96. Route started out with some rebreaking of an old trail so the first 3 plus miles went quickly. The next two were slow going as we trenched to treeline in occasionally waist deep snow. Above treeline the route was mostly dry and we were able to persevere and reach the summit. It was a long day though, 13 hours for the 14 miles and 5000 vertical feet.

Nothing technical about this mountain but it's size. Great bowls in the back towards Mt. Oklahoma for skiing. Winter Class 1 access on the front. And an interesting end to end ridge option at some point.

technicolorNHUncertain weather  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 16, 2011


Had a somewhat slower climb than expected due to snow from a storm that hit earlier in the week. Four hours and forty minutes from the parking lot trailhead and the clouds wreathing the top kept me from really knowing which of the summits was in fact the highest summit. Only met two other hikers, a father and son combo from Oregon and Washington. A lot of marmots above the treeline and the weather held off until I got back to my car after the three hour descent.

Did the shortest south slopes route from the N. Halfmoon Creek TH and didn't start until 1:30 pm but this turned to our advantage as the morning saw bad foggy/rainy and snowy weather that turned most of the days hikers around but the afternoon treated us to much nicer and clearer weather.

Went up the South Slopes and it is a fantastic route. Don't let the short milage fool you, it's a steep climb and I'm sure many more people bail on this route compared to the main trail. Great weather besides a few claps of thunder as we were coming down just before noon. The summit was busy and probably had about 8 dogs on it too.

This one sucked, only because the 4 mile long hike back after re-entering the trees on the standard trail.

Nice day for a quick hike, took 2:10 to summit. Nasty weather moved in after I got back into town.

I didn't see a soul all day. The route is better than the guide implied. Weather came in fast. I descended through hail, snow and rain.

KapelmuurStandard route on freakishly hot day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2011


Some nuisance snowfields along the way but otherwise a great day. Shaved a mile off the descent by glissading a long section just before the saddle with S. Massive. Luckily the weather was freakishly hot so my ass dried off quickly!

Snow in many forms - hardpack, corn, slush - made for quite a slog, making the summit that much sweeter! Gorgeous spring day with the usual 40 mph breeze up high.

As soon as we reached the summit, clouds blew in and we jetted to the bottom. We spent the night off-trail above treeline at around 12,000 ft.

That was a nice trip, minus almost getting struck by lightning. :)

Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2009


This was my first fourteener and one of my first hikes in Colorado. My first experience with this level of altitude was a trip! It was really quite busy at the summit and there seemed to be a rotating crowd. While I was up there a very large lightning storm blew in suddenly and it became a difficult situation finding a safe spot to go so go early! There were many marmots near the summit which was wonderful also. :)
