odysseusRoute Climbed: Colorado Main Range Trail Date Climbed: July 28, 2004  Sucess!


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

SaintgrizzlyRoute Climbed: West Slopes Date Climbed: Summer, 1991  Sucess!


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!

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

sbkelleyRoute Climbed: Southeast Ridge Date Climbed: June 2003  Sucess!


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!

RyanSRoute Climbed: West Slopes alternate, including Date Climbed: October 19, 2002  Sucess!


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.

esugiRoute Climbed: From the North Halfmoon Creek Trailhead Date Climbed: October 2002  Sucess!


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.

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

notracksRoute Climbed: Native Lake Trailhead Date Climbed: September 2002  Sucess!


This was an overnight ascent. We started from the Native lake trailhead. Spent the night at Native Lake. The folowing day we did a little tour du Massive. We reached Massive through the ridge that starts right from the summit Eastward. Then we went over Massive Green, North Massive, Point 14169, enjoyed the fresh snow on the glacier and climbed down all the way back to the trailhead. It was a very, very long day. Especially after you are done with the peak and have to hike out for 2-3 more hours with the heavy backpacks on.

HelgaRoute Climbed: Standard route Date Climbed: 7.12.03  Sucess!


Great day for a hike! Windy above timberline, partly cloudy all the way up which made it easier then hiking under full sun. Interesting portion of climb before reaching the summit with breathtaking views, needless to say! Overall much prettier to hike then Elbert. Very windy on the top, hold on to your hats! We were low of drinks even we had packed plenty. Got to the summit sort of dehydrated. Filled up a bottle with snow which helped us make it back. Grateful for that snow! Had attempted this mountain twice in the past year but never reached the summit because of changes in the weather. Felt good to have finally made it. Now I can plan another Fourteener and pack MORE WATER!

A delightful day with fellow Sp'ers Aaron & Ellen. Southwest Slopes is my kind of route. Short & straight up. The summit ridge was beautiful. Glissading down the amphitheatre by the West Couloir was a real treat! Thanks, guys!

West slopes - very long sustained steep climb up tundra. Climbed with my favorite climbing partner Aaron and fellow SPer Eileen from Vancouver. We had the summit to ourselves. Weather was perfect. We had a great time glissading down a very long snow field. We went very very fast and had a great time. I would climb Massive again via this route in early season.
