Ascent Trip Report

Third 14er in as many days for us. This was definitely the most difficult of the three (Elbert, Massive, & Harvard). Made good time on the lower trail then after a bit of a plateau above the treeline there is a fairly large bolder field to go up, over, and across. From there it levels off again and the starts some serious up with a final short scramble to the summit. Started about 5:00 and were on top at 10:30 without really killing ourselves. Lots of pica everywhere. Took our time coming down and then went to Buffalo Bar & Grill in Bueana Vista after showering up at the Best Western.
