A hiker from Texas was rescued after nearly 48 hours on Mt. Massive in Lake County, hitching a ride down the slope while "near death," the county's emergency manager said.

A group of five hikers taking on the difficult Mt. Massive split apart for unknown reasons, leaving two men behind. One found his own way back to camp the next morning.

Massive, one of Colorado's 54 14ers, has two Class 2 routes to the summit, according to One route is 8 miles to the peak; the other nearly 14.
