gwave47Main Trail from Halfmoon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2008


Summitted Mt. Massive on the backside of a 3week hiking trip. It was probably a good idea to make it one of the later Mountains to climb in the trip, because I was able to get well acclimated. It was still difficult, especially the final push, but I always love climbing mountains in the Sawatch Range.

Windy enough at the saddle to knock you over if you weren't careful! But a good day overall.

Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2008


Enjoyed a bluebird day up and down the slopes of Mt. Massive. Started around 7:00AM, summitted late around 11:30, and enjoyed the clear blue skies for about an hour before heading back down to the car where we arrived around 4:00PM. This route has a great, well-maintained trail and nothing overly steep on it, but this is definitely a looooong day. We were lucky to have such great weather the whole day.

Great views on the way up! Steeper than I thought it would be, but a great hike!

PivvayMain summit from Halfmoon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2008


Awesome, beautiful trip. Got a little standing glissade in on the descent which was nice. Great flowers. We got stormed off the top so we only spent a couple minutes up there but I'll be back to do the full circle tour another day. Marni, Turbo and Chris.

Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2008


5th 14er in 5 days. Left at 5:30 am, arrived before 9am. Me and brother had the summit to ourselves for several moments with a good lunch and Paulaner beer. Glissaded down ~300ft from the ridge.

photo61guyAnother Nice Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2008
A day after Elbert we were finding our groove. Another nice day for training as people looked at us once in a while as we were carrying rather heavy packs. Absolutely loved the glissading shortly after the summit. Alison and I must have started something as 5 other climbers followed suit. :^)

Via the Normal Route with my wife. Returned several times since to climb all of the other 14,000 foot points on the peak.

I forget the exact date. I went solo, got off route in the woods on the descent and found myself up to my neck in snow at one point (with snowshoes on). I had a sickening feeling that I would be spending the night out, but managed to get out of the deep stuff and back on route. Whew!

We camped in the grand ampitheater at 13,000 ft. Next morning we went right up the west couloir, the summit is maybe 100 feet from the top of the couloir.

Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2007


My friend Keith and I completed Massive Mania, which climbs all nine of Mount Massive's summits, five of which are above 14,000 feet. We performed the route from south to north, starting at Mount Massive Trailhead and ending at Windsor Lake Trailhead. We were above treeline for most of the day, but the weather was perfect.

shknbkeeast ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 26, 2008


Calendar winter ascent via the east ridge from Leadville Fish Hatchery. Took the broken Highline Trail all the way to 11200' with group of 7, then followed a fresh trench to treeline courtesy of legendary Ken Nolan and Co. Winds were moderate on summit with 15 degree temp. Great winter route. 10.75 hours total hiking time (13 miles/4900'), so it would be a much longer slog with no trench to follow.

Wonderful, frigid and snowy night climb with some friends up the South-West slopes route. Steep enough to slide all the way down!
