Mount Massive Climbing Notes

E Gilbert from CANADA writes:

Please see for detailed information. <br/>A marvelous hike, long day, but worth it. About 22 - 24 km from campsites in Halfmoon creek, south of the mountain. Be off the summit by midday because frequent and sudden thunderstorms kill. Start ~ 6 am.
