What an amazing hike. Used the Mt. Massive trail head. Planned to do South Massive and Mt Massive as well. There's a huge boulder right on the trail seems there's a narrow gap on the up hill side. Glad I had spikes and poles. Should have worn my gators. Snow was soft the further down I was. I decided to go straight up the snow to South Massive. The snow higher up held me and I continued up the face, until... I noticed a cornice on the left side of the rock outcrop along the ridge so I decided to stay to the right. Upon arriving the skies west were BLACK. I snapped a few pics and descended to the saddle and back to trailhead ASAP, only to have sunny skies.
