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.

Longest Day Ever  Sucess!

We left from the Windsor Lake Trailhead and hit all the summits except for South Massive. Returned via Native Lake. About 20 miles.

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.

Massive SW Slopes  Sucess!

Great hike on a great trail! The Colorado Fourteeners Initiative is doing outstanding work!

We went up and down on the SW Slopes Trail from N Halfmoon Creek trailhead.

An excellent day!

Route Climbed: West Slopes  Sucess!

From North Halfmoon TH. Intended to do all the 14,000+ summits, but only did "Massive Green" and Massive due to bad weather. Beautiful basin around Halfmoon Lakes, much unpleasant loose rock and scree to the North Massive saddle and then again on the descent down some other gully.

From N. Halfmoon TH  Sucess!

Started up at 6:00AM with ideal weather, missed the new CFI trail and ended up around the west side and scrambling up the huge basin (not easy). I picked the right line as I reached the top about 100 yards west of the summit. Lots of people on top, spectacular views all-around, stayed about 20 mins then back down the CFI way and back to the TH at 12:10PM. My 24th 14'er and another gorgious Colorado morning. Sweet!!!

The Tour  Sucess!

Bagged all 5 14000' summits from the west side. Really easy hike except for a bit of route-finding on the descent into upper Halfmoon Creek basin. A bit of rain/snow came through later that day after we were back in camp.

Mt Massive TH Ascend E Slopes  Sucess!

This was one long hike. On the way up we were passed by several "youngsters", who, when we caught them on the top were quick to praise how well we "old" people were doing, then proceeded to beg Advil from us. Go figure!
