Mount Massive - 14,427 Feet

As the 2nd highest peak in Colorado, Mt. Massive has the most land above 14,000 feet. With five 14k+ summits and a north-to-south length of several miles, this peak is truly massive. Viewing Mt. Massive from U.S. 24 in Leadville, you can't help but see the grand size of this peak.

If you're in good shape and have a few 14ers under your belt, you can climb Mt. Massive via either the standard East Ridge Route or the rugged Southwest Ridge Route. Both have a trail almost to the summit but when you get close to the top, you'll be faced with some Class 2 terrain. Make sure you're in good shape and well acclimated before climbing this peak.
