Was a total disaster. Here is the blog I wrote on the climb up and how my group got lost coming back down. http://micksmiscellaneous.blogspot.com/2012/10/lost-on-mount-massive-in-leadville-co.html

Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2012


12 of the men from Christ Church Plano (TX) attempted to bag Massive (100% successful!) via Standard (East Slopes) Route. Beautiful weather on a fine mountain. The long 13.75 mi. route had me a bit nervous; but I had no trouble until about the last mile when knees, ankles and feet protested pretty strongly. The new boots will be returned to REI in hopes of finding a better fit. 22nd CO 14er.

Did Massive with 2 friends who had never hiked on anything over 10,000 feet. We ended up hitting the summit in 2:26 and took 1:34 to descent. Very nice trail. We had rain and hail on the way down at 11 AM.

Steep climb after getting off the main trail, but I like the directness of it. Nice ridge walk above 14k.

Beautiful day, great trail, lovely hike. Surprised by how few people are out here today! Lovely!!! Very cool to bump into "capitan Eric," the Mexican Viking, and his entourage!

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.

Date Climbed: Feb 11, 2012


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!

Date Climbed: Feb 11, 2012


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.

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.
