East Slopes Route  Sucess!

Nice trail with great views on top. This was a very long hike but rather enjoyable.

Quite a hike but luckily no thunderstorms  Sucess!

Aptly named mountain, the altitude was brutal on me; this being a climb I made before even really getting into this sport. Two years later, in better shape, I climbed Elbert and Massive back to back in two days from Elbert campground.

South Slopes  Sucess!

Great, quick trip up the South Slopes of Mt. Massive. I really enjoyed the summit ridge-line traverse after a hail storm.

Solitude at the Gates of Heaven

Two days after summiting Elbert, I opted to not try for the summit of Massive, and instead hikes up North Halfmoon Lakes trail. I followed the "Tour de Massive" approach up to the basin formed by Massive, North Massive and Massive Green. There at just under 13,000', I was rewarded with the solitude and grandeur of this area.

A massive climb  Sucess!

Started from North Halfmoon trailhead around 6 am and followed the trail up to Halfmoon lakes. We then proceeded towards North Massive's snow covered South Face. We climbed the snow slope until it became scree and gained the Southwest ridge towards North Massive (14,340’). We made the summit of North Massive and then descended the ridge (Class 3 Scramble). Once in the col we scrambled (Class 2+) up and over Massive Green (14,300’). From Massive Green we descended a bit until we made the final ascent to the summit of Mount Massive (14,421') We decided to take the west slopes back to our cars. A very long and challenging day up and over 3 summits. Made it back to our cars around 5 pm.

Massive Mania  Sucess!

climbed the "tour de" minus Mt Oklahoma. descended via steep scree gully and navigated my way to the lakes and eventually the trail back. Elevation gain is no joke going up to South Massive! Straight up!
