Route Climbed: West Slopes Date Climbed: July 31, 2005  Sucess!

Steep! We headed northwest from the summit and went around the north side of Massive Green. We then descended steep scree slopes into the Ampitheatre. Great time!

2:45 up under azure skies. The 3 foot high rock cairn for the right turn is on the right side of the main trail. And there are actually two cairns. The CFI trail hits the ridge north of the saddle.

This is the short, but steep route on Massive... they're putting in switchbacks, so Roach's mileage is off. Started 3:00, up 6:15 for sunrise. Gorgeous. trip report to come - did Elbert same day

Route Climbed: Standard from Halfmoon Creek TH Date Climbed: 2 July 2005  Sucess!

This was my second attempt in 2 weeks. I made it this time in 4 1/2 hours. That ridge was a lot of fun but the hike back down after the saddle was rather long. Great views.

I had planned to Hike Peak 1 in the Tenmile Range on this day, but my sister's friend, Kate, had planned to do a 14er, so we climbed Massive. The weather was gorgeous: clear skies, not too windy, though it was pretty warm coming back down. It was a good, but very long day.

My second attempt on Mount Massive. This route is enjoyable, but it makes for a long day. The view from the top was fantastic!

Route Climbed: Mount Massive Trail via Colorado Trail Date Climbed: August 7, 2004  Sucess!

Climbed with two friends from work. Made the summit and it wasn't crowded at all. Snow squall chased us off. Camped the night before along Halfmoon Creek and was kept awake by all-night party goons.

Route Climbed: North Halfmooon Creek Date Climbed: Sept 1993  Sucess!

A long and high attitude gain. The valley west of Massive is just gorgeous and drew me back several

times to camp and climb Mt Oklahoma and Deer

I took the Halfmoon Creek Trail. This sucked. I was sliding back as much as I moved forward. Scree from hell. The trail was kind of hard to follow. Coming down was just as bad, falling on my ass the whole way down.
