Not Today

Started from the N. Halfmoon TH to take the SW slopes route. Great hike. I had the entire area to myself, but clouds and thunder turned me back just shy of the summit ridge. There's always next year!

The Southeast Ridge  Sucess!

Decided to tackle Mt. Massive from the Southeast Ridge for a different approach. Climbed over three peaks before reaching Mt. Massive for an exhausting but fun climb. Returned via the standard trail.

Via Colorado Trail  Sucess!

Gental climb considering rise over run (4370' for 6.8miles). Several sub-summits on ridgeline and very panaramic. Ideal weather. 4hrs time up for 2nd 14er after acclimatizing overnight and prime rib in Leadville.

Perfection  Sucess!

Clouds lifted as we left the trail head in the morning from the Colorado Main Range Trail. All around perfect climb with Andy.

Nice weather, good hike. My legs took a beating on the way down.

Southeast Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed the long challenging southeast ridge with Alan and Robert and then completed the loop with the Massive Trail. It was a great day with typical crazy Colorado weather. We experienced sunshine, rain, snow, fog, wind and fortunately distant thunder.

Piece of Cake  Sucess!

Route: To Windsor Lake, gain ridge, run it hitting all the peaks, bag Massive, go down NE ridge to Native Lake trail...
20 miles with only about 8 miles of actual trail? 7,000 vert? No problem. (would have been nice if I didn't leave my keys for the "vehicle shuttle" in the car at the other side) I say this to lure other unsuspecting crazy people to this route, you realize...:) The north side of the Massive ridge is absolutely phenomenal! I want it all to myself...on second thought, don't go there. :) This was Brandon's first "Becky Special" hike.

Via the trail on the east slopes  Sucess!

Fun hike but would definitally like to start doing more difficult routes up mountains than just following a trail. Beautiful day above orning fog in the valley with Leadville.

Southwest Slope  Sucess!

After several false summits, I finally reached the summit with hiking pals Phil Miller and Dan Spare in about four and one half hours. Interesting wildlife along the way included a white marmot and mountain goat. This was a much more interesting hike than doing Elbert 48 hours prior. My eighth fourteener.

early am massive  Sucess!

Woke at 3, headed out by 3:30, was alone on the trail for all of the way up, at the summit and partially on the way down. Beautiful sunrise, a nice trail.

SW slopes, mini Massive mania  Sucess!

Climbed the southwest slopes route from the N. Halfmoon Creek TH with daughter Trish and grandson Ted. I darted ahead to tag S. Massive, and also took off northward to Massive Green as the other two began their descent from the summit. A beautiful day: running and climbing in shorts and tank top most of the day. Started at 6:40 am, summitted just before noon (the first time) back to the car at 4:00 pm. A few good pictures and 14er #26.

All Rain Ascent  Sucess!

Climbed standard route on monsoon day. Very nice to have the summit all to ourselves. Nice climb on fantastic trail. Lots of rain and sleet.
