 Mt. Massive is CLOSED  

I drove up to Mt. Massive so i could climb it today (8/23/09), and it is CLOSED. The Entire mountain is closed due to the crash that occurred a few days ago. The sign did not say when it will be re-opened. If someone goes up later and finds that it is open, please post so i can climb it. Thanks

Of course it‘s unfortunate about the deaths, but I‘m always astonished at the arrogance of people who arbitrarily ”close” public property to the public. My guess would be that if you drove to the Taylor Lake TH on the Hagerman Pass road, you could hike south along the ridge to Mt. Massive with no fuss, despite their ”closure.” It‘s a longer hike, of course, but very scenic.
