LonePeakFreakWest Couloir  Sucess!

Planned on doing the SW Slopes but ended up in the amphitheater where we hit the West Couloir right up the gut. A little longer but better scenery. Descended SW Slopes. Awesome weather and amazing views.

Overcast skies caused me to push a bit harder in an effort to beat the weather, but nature allowed me on the summit and even brought a bit of sun near tree line on the descent. Encountered parades of hikers above tree line, but hiked back nearly alone.

Good thing I'm not superstitious. Left the North Halfmoon trailhead at 4pm with a full pack with thoughts of camping at treeline. The weather was just too nice to stop though so humped it on up the West Couloir. Though somehow I think I ended up in a different couloir than those mentioned in the guidebooks. I came out at the South Massive summit. Well, it was dark by the time I summited and a couple snow flurries came in. Decided I was too tired to go down. I had my bivy sack and sleeping bag with me so I found a nice bivy spot in the rocks 50 feet down on the east side of the summit. My first night on a 14er. Woke up to a fantastic sunrise out over Leadville. Best view I've ever had from a sleeping bag!

Date Climbed: Jun 6, 2007

Snow storm set in with winds gusting hard enough to knock us over. Summited in whiteout and descended back to south ridge in white out and crazy winds. We were able to find our way back to the gulley we climbed and as we descended this gulley, the weather became more agreeable. An awesome day with some tricky route finding and weather conditions that were unexpected for early june. Got to ski a little powder from the fresh snow.

A little more fun than the main route, true summit was a little tricky to find.

Started from the N. Halfmoon TH to take the SW slopes route. Great hike. I had the entire area to myself, but clouds and thunder turned me back just shy of the summit ridge. There's always next year!

Decided to tackle Mt. Massive from the Southeast Ridge for a different approach. Climbed over three peaks before reaching Mt. Massive for an exhausting but fun climb. Returned via the standard trail.

Gental climb considering rise over run (4370' for 6.8miles). Several sub-summits on ridgeline and very panaramic. Ideal weather. 4hrs time up for 2nd 14er after acclimatizing overnight and prime rib in Leadville.

Climbed the long challenging southeast ridge with Alan and Robert and then completed the loop with the Massive Trail. It was a great day with typical crazy Colorado weather. We experienced sunshine, rain, snow, fog, wind and fortunately distant thunder.

Route: To Windsor Lake, gain ridge, run it hitting all the peaks, bag Massive, go down NE ridge to Native Lake trail...
20 miles with only about 8 miles of actual trail? 7,000 vert? No problem. (would have been nice if I didn't leave my keys for the "vehicle shuttle" in the car at the other side) I say this to lure other unsuspecting crazy people to this route, you realize...:) The north side of the Massive ridge is absolutely phenomenal! I want it all to myself...on second thought, don't go there. :) This was Brandon's first "Becky Special" hike.
