Mount Massive, second highest in Colorado and neighbor to Mount Elbert, the state high point, was named by Henry Gannett, member of the Hayden Survey. Attempts to rename the peak have been rebuffed by popular demand and it retains is aptly descriptive name. It rises from its broad base and is topped off by five points over 14,000 feet. While it is a long climb, it is not considered difficult.
