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.

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

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!

Gorgeous meadow walking and wildflowers made this a delightful hike. Summit was in and out of clouds, but what a view every time it cleared out! Drained the last of our Yukon Jack on the summit :-(

My third 14er.

Planned on doing the SW Slopes but ended up in the amphitheater where we hit the West Couloir right up the gut. A little longer but better scenery. Descended SW Slopes. Awesome weather and amazing views.

Overcast skies caused me to push a bit harder in an effort to beat the weather, but nature allowed me on the summit and even brought a bit of sun near tree line on the descent. Encountered parades of hikers above tree line, but hiked back nearly alone.

Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2007


Good thing I'm not superstitious. Left the North Halfmoon trailhead at 4pm with a full pack with thoughts of camping at treeline. The weather was just too nice to stop though so humped it on up the West Couloir. Though somehow I think I ended up in a different couloir than those mentioned in the guidebooks. I came out at the South Massive summit. Well, it was dark by the time I summited and a couple snow flurries came in. Decided I was too tired to go down. I had my bivy sack and sleeping bag with me so I found a nice bivy spot in the rocks 50 feet down on the east side of the summit. My first night on a 14er. Woke up to a fantastic sunrise out over Leadville. Best view I've ever had from a sleeping bag!
