thexcatStandard Route  Sucess!
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. :^)

Sam Page

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.

Date Climbed: Dec 16, 2006
Wonderful, frigid and snowy night climb with some friends up the South-West slopes route. Steep enough to slide all the way down!

Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2006


The weather was strange. Normally one has to watch out of afternoon storms, but on this day the storms were in the morning and they cleared out by noon.

Sadly, Massive was my only climb in 2006. A very long hike, that wrecked my knee for a while, and I had to wear a brace on hikes for a while afterwards. It was rainy when we started, but no lightning all day, could only see about 200 feet in any direction from the summit, but we were the only ones up there. A nice trail!

The views from this summit are still fresh in my mind. Loved it! Hiked the SW slope trail. The 14er's initiative group was doing trail work on it then, great work!
