JB99Tour de Massive  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2008


Great way to climb Massive, includes N. Massive which rises 280 feet from the connecting saddle and if it were ranked would be the 5th highest in the state.

Nice climb - 2nd of 4 on our "marathon" week in Colorado - beautiful state. Photo61Guy's flatulence problem on Elbert seemed to have remedied itself today, PTL.

8/1/04 - Climbed the short but steep SW Slopes route from North Halfmoon Creek TH. My first solo 14er.

10/8/05 - Started at North Halfmoon Creek TH, climbed Mt. Oklahoma, and then traversed via the interesting ridge to the Massive massif. Finished off with Massive Mania - hitting all 5 summits above 14K. Great fall day!

1/26/08 - Winter ascent of the east ridge from the Leadville Fish Hatchery with the legendary Ken Nolan. Traversed to North Massive a well.

Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2008


As with Elbert, I hiked Massive with McCannster. I liked Massive better than Elbert, and I thought that the view from the top was better. I was surprised at the deceiving massiveness of Massive's east slopes. On the summit we watched as a cloud developed, fueled by updrafts coming off of Massive's East side.

With Gareth. A bit more enjoyable than Elbert, however I didn't realize how, well for lack of a better term, MASSIVE, the slopes of this peak are. Fun day though, did the main trail in about 8 hours.

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.

mountainloverCOMt. Massive TH  Sucess!
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.

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.

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. :^)

Clark_GriswoldDay after Elbert  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2007


This was my second 14er, and it felt a lot harder than my first. Thats probably because I did it the day after I did Elbert. I got up later than I wanted to and decided to hike because I had all the necessary supplies. It ended up being a great trip. I passed everyone else as they were coming down, and had the summit to myself the entire time. No storms and a great view of my previous days hike, plus the entire area. Met some folks coming up as I was heading down. I think I made the whole trip in about 7 1/2 hours, which was good considering my legs were rather fatigued. I was able to go pretty fast coming down, since I really wanted to eat.
