I am interested in these but I haven't planned it all out yet so I'm not sure if I can go at this point. Were you planning on a Friday drive over there and a Saturday hike? Any idea what conditions are like? Weather looks good.

Would you guys mind a pokey tagalong again? Enjoyed our last outing and Oklahoma is on my list as well. Also, my truck may be able to get us a bit further up the road.

Heya Mike!

Certainly. I am going up Friday night to car camp at the trailhead for Mount Elbert. We are meeting up there at 6:30AM, and then driving up to the SW Massive trailhead. Should be fun getting another centennial, and that valley is just gorgeous.

Ryan and Mike-

Britt is aiming for a 7am meet time, he will be coming in a 2WD vehicle. Can we agree on a 2WD accessible meetup location like the Mt Massive TH:

Sounds great. I will plan on being at the Mt Massive TH (N Halfmoon Creek) at 7. We can pile into my truck to drive the extra 0.5 mi.

Pretty excited... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INOeZnfUuIY

We should have at least two vehicles with 4WD/AWD to caravan to the upper TH if needed. As of now it's myself, Britt + 1, Ryan, Mike going for Oklahoma.

For the Oklahoma climb tomorrow (Saturday, Nov. 24) let's clarify a few things:

Several people are camping tonight at the North Elbert TH. This is the parking lot on your left/south side of Halfmoon Creek Rd/CO 11, and is approximately 7.5 to 8 miles after you turn off of Hwy 24. Those who I've been told are camping here is: ACERyGuy007, Brian Thomas, fepic1.

Me & queza plan to meet those camping at this location in the morning at 6:30am where we can all pile into the capable 4x4's. NOTE: I believe there was a post saying to meet at the Mt. Massive TH which is on the right/north side of the road. Instead, let's all meet at the North Elbert TH on the left/south side.

At 6:30am, we will then drive up to the N. Halfmoon Creek TH which is the same parking area for climbing Mt. Massive's Southwest slopes. This is a little over 10 miles after turning off of Hwy 24 and is at 10,500 feet.

The aim is for a 7am hiking time, heading north up the North Halfmoon Creek drainage for Oklahoma.

It looks like there could be a half dozen of us or more. Should be quite the social gathering! See you in the morning.

Hey Fepic,

Sounds good. I will probably get to the Mount Elbert trailhead parking lot around 8:30PM-9PM or so tonight in my 2002 Grey Jeep Grand Cherokee. Just going to car camp it.

Should be a stellar day, and great group. I am planning to bring my MSR reactor stove to the summit as usual, so if you bring something that just needs hot water, it makes for a great summit lunch/drink. (I usually bring a Mountain house and some good strong English tea)

It sounds like Britt is aiming for a 6:30AM time after chatting with him last night, although Brian said 7:00AM above. I am going to aim to be ready by 6:30 though.

Either way, we are meeting at Mount Elbert trailhead and then taking the 4WD cars up to the SW Massive trailhead to start.

Looking forward to it!
