Not Quite

We got to about 13,250 and had to turn back because of weather. We had started at 5:30 and ended up turning around at 8:30 am! Rain, snow, thunder and LOTS of dark clouds made that an easy decision. Also, after my experience on Mt. Lindsey I opted to go back. Bummer especially after driving 5 hours from Philmont.

Southwest Slopes  Sucess!

Only got to spend about a minute enjoying the summit at about 10am, as the weather deteriorated quickly. I've never descended so fast.

North Half Moon  Sucess!

I lugged snowshoes all the way up, but amazingly never had to use them. Nice morning. Trip report

Fun ridge traveling (part of tour de massive), going down the talus slope - not so much.

Big Day  Sucess!

Last big climb on a 30 day Colorado Outward Bound school course. Woke up at 4, climbed Massive, came down and broke camp, and then hiked out to COB base camp in Leadville.

A ton of snow, but a ton of fun. No clouds, minimal wind, awesome views.

from the main trail  Sucess!

Started just before dawn. My second 14er.

Some snow from a couple hundred feet from the saddle. Wind and slushy snow up to the summit. Was socked in a cloud up top, which cleared as I was descending. Back to the parking lot just before 3pm. Great climb.

Tour de Massive  Sucess!

I started out at 0530 at the North Halfmoon Trailhead. Trail was very nice all of the way up to Massive Summit. I made it to the Massive Summit, then traversed to Massive Green, North Massive and Point 14,169. Nice scramble between Massive Green and North Massive. I returned back the way I came out. I then headed to the summit of South Massive. I made it back to my car at about 2:30. It snowed a little during the morning, but nothing to turn me back. I only saw ten or so people throughout the day. This was a solo trip.

Massive Mania--almost  Sucess!

Last peak of the day, after hitting all the ridge points to the north, starting from the Windsor Lake TH. Bailed down the east slopes trail as thunder boomed and graupel moved in. Windy most of the morning, but still a great day on the summit ridge.
