West Couloir  Sucess!

Planned on doing the SW Slopes but ended up in the amphitheater where we hit the West Couloir right up the gut. A little longer but better scenery. Descended SW Slopes. Awesome weather and amazing views.

Via Massive Trail  Sucess!

Overcast skies caused me to push a bit harder in an effort to beat the weather, but nature allowed me on the summit and even brought a bit of sun near tree line on the descent. Encountered parades of hikers above tree line, but hiked back nearly alone.

Colorado Trail  Sucess!

Climbed it at night on a fullmoon and stayed on top for the sun to rise. CLimbed both subpeaks. Very beautiful.

ski descent SW gulley  Sucess!

Snow storm set in with winds gusting hard enough to knock us over. Summited in whiteout and descended back to south ridge in white out and crazy winds. We were able to find our way back to the gulley we climbed and as we descended this gulley, the weather became more agreeable. An awesome day with some tricky route finding and weather conditions that were unexpected for early june. Got to ski a little powder from the fresh snow.

SW Slopes  Sucess!

A little more fun than the main route, true summit was a little tricky to find.

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.

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.
