F Bomb

Got a late start at 6:30 summitted about 10:45. Was snowing pretty good. Heard thunder as we were leaving the summit about 11:00. Booked down to treeline where it rained on us the rest of the way. Great long hike. Amazing views from the entire ridgeline.

It was a easy hike belowe the treeline. It was a little hard above the treeline but I did make to the summit. It has a beautifull view. I enjoyed it a lot.

This route is long and crowded. The mountain is impressive, though. I would like to try some of the harder, shorter routes in the future.

As Roach states " a long hike"... A pleasant walk in the woods followed by an uphill grind. A lot of fun!

Quite a distinctive mountain--I like it! Climbed with Aaron Johnson up the steep west slopes (but a good, easy trail), which proved to get us to the summit relatively quickly, but nothing like how fast we descended the wonderful scree slopes a bit further north on the same side! What a wonderful day!

Climber with 2 brothers and a friend. West Slopes route was short and sweet. A new trail was being built last summer.

this route, contrary to dawson's description, does NOT avoid heinous scree. in fact it defines it.

After hopping over 3 summits to get there, our group finally stood on the main summit after a very cold and windy ascent. A quick descent down the snow fields made up for it, though. Pretty good workout, I'd say.

This is simply the ONLY way one should climb Massive. How else can one experience the massiveness of Massive unless you walk along all its massive summits? Views from the ascent up to North Massive almost brought me to tears. Do this hike NOW!

We kicked steps into a snowslope to reach the ridge west of "North Massive." We summitted that peak, and continued the circle tour to Massive's summit. A trip report is available here.

What an enjoyable climb. There was just enough snow from earlier dump that this "hike" in the summer felt like a "climb" this particular day. Good boots and ice axes were used.



Started from North Halfmoon Creek Trailhead and the entire route is described here:

I spent a little bit of time trying to decide which peak was highest. I finally decided on the one at N39.18753 W106.47562 (WGS 84). It appears slightly higher than the one at N39.18588 W106.47505.

Long but fun. That was a lot of time to spend above 14k. A little chilly with the wind but otherwise a nice day. The class 3 section between North Massive and Massive Green was the highlight.

Very enjoyable climb. I found this one to be prettier than nearby Elbert, depsite the longer length (also less crowded, had summit to ourselves).
