Neck-deep snow  Sucess!

I forget the exact date. I went solo, got off route in the woods on the descent and found myself up to my neck in snow at one point (with snowshoes on). I had a sickening feeling that I would be spending the night out, but managed to get out of the deep stuff and back on route. Whew!

Up the Southwest and down the East standard route  Sucess!

Just got to the top when a thunderstorm rolled in a chased us all the way down to the trees.

West couloir  Sucess!

We camped in the grand ampitheater at 13,000 ft. Next morning we went right up the west couloir, the summit is maybe 100 feet from the top of the couloir.

Massive Mania  Sucess!

My friend Keith and I completed Massive Mania, which climbs all nine of Mount Massive's summits, five of which are above 14,000 feet. We performed the route from south to north, starting at Mount Massive Trailhead and ending at Windsor Lake Trailhead. We were above treeline for most of the day, but the weather was perfect.

Fourth Time  Sucess!

This was my fourth climb of Massive. This was via the standard route from the east.

east ridge  Sucess!

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.

Winter ascent.  Sucess!

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

Mount Massive Trail  Sucess!

Spent the day almost entirely alone as we encountered only one other person on a perfect day over Massive. ^^^^ ask her, she knows.

Eastern Slopes  Sucess!

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.

#24  Sucess!

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!

One of my favorites!  Sucess!

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!

Good Hike  Sucess!

Left halfmoon trailhead at 8:30am, arrived on the summit at 11:15, took a nice 1hr lunch, then back to the truck by 3:00 in the afternoon.

Great climb with kids  Sucess!

backpacked up to tree line, got poured on at night, and awakened to the perfect day for this hike.

North Halfmoon TH  Sucess!

Enjoyable hike up the southwest slopes. Weather a bit overcast.

From the Colorado Trail  Sucess!

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.
