xskier77Route Climbed: Tour du Massive Date Climbed: September 18, 2004  Sucess!


Took the standard route to the main summit of Massive. Then skirted below the summit of Massive Green and hit North Massive and Point 14,169. Came back to Summit Massive Green and back over the main summit of Massive. Finally summited South Massive. This was a very long intense day and was fun to do Massive again.

MelMRoute Climbed: Main Range Trail/East Slopes Date Climbed: September 6, 2004  Sucess!
Only a dusting of snow on the mountain (if even that much). Easy hike below treeline and just above treeline...then the fun starts. Gain a lot of vertical in just over a mile. We were discouraged by the summit ridge at first, but it was only light scrambling.

The most incredible views! We started too late and just made it back before dark, as we underestimated the decent. Start early!

Third time was a charm for me! Had to turn around twice before due to weather and a chest cold. Oh yeah, saw a herd of approx. 10 deer on the trail. A good omen! My friend ran out of water on the way down, but was able to filter some from a stream just below treeline.

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!

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!

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.
