 Elbert to Massive the Hard Way   

I had this trip in mind for a little while based on a simple question: could you link up Mt. Elbert to Mt. Massive via the ridgeline that encircles the Half Moon Creek drainage? Trip report text is here! Grab the GPX on the Caltop page, or on the Google Map below,

Very impressive stuff! Saw your sign in on the French register and was intrigued on how you were going to connect Elbert and Massive going along the ridge.

Brillant !!!

I just saw this and man, that's a HUGE amount of terrain to cover in one go. Never underestimate the combined power of fitness and stubbornness!
