Super Dave

After some fresh snow the night before, I had the area to myself. Was able to follow the trail most of the time, but lost it occasionally due to snow drifts. Super windy up high made for quite the adventure. Blue skies and beautiful. Parked about a mile below the summer trailhead. 8 hours round trip for both peaks. Trip Report

Date Climbed: Jun 26, 1999


There were many people on the mountain this day. One guy from the midwest was carrying a jacket in a plastic grocery store bag. Every mountain is different every day. We live in a world of continual change. In good weather, Grays can be an easy climb. With wind and snow, it is more challenging.

kronshage3Gray's + Torrey's Combo  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 23, 2016


Started around 7AM. Was able to make it all the way to trailhead. There was a few inches of snow on the road, however. Did the standard combo route by ascending Gray's first then crossing the saddle to Torrey's. Followed a separate trail down from the bottom of saddle. No need for snowshoes. Did not bring crampons, but would have been nice on a few sections. LOTS of wind on the saddle and Torrey's summit. Back at car around 2PM.

drootGrays and Torreys via Kelso Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2016


Climbed both Grays and Torreys by Kelso ridge. Parking lot was full by about 4am on a Saturday. Had the mountain to ourselves the entire way up Kelso ridge, but could see the lines of people heading up the standard route. Kelso ridge was a blast, had a little route finding mishap near the top and managed to somehow completely circumnavigate the knife edge. Once at the top of Torreys it was crowds of people all the way to Grays and down. Lots of snow in late August made for some slippery conditions from all the packed snow. 500+ people on the mountain made for some traffic jams on the way down.

BLBonnetSecond time was the charm!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2013


Originally attempted a summit during March - DO NOT attempt to climb this mountain during March unless you have at least SOME climbing experience. The road to the base was impassable by car and added an extra 4 miles to the trip. My family had to turn around only a mile up the mountain (granted we're from Oklahoma, so we're not the most experienced mountaineers).

That being said it was a very easy climb in August - my very inexperienced family managed to make it up and down in a couple of hours. It was relatively crowded the entire way up, but the hike itself was very fun. I was able to walk over and bag torrey's peak as well - I got down the mountain maybe an hour after the rest of my family.

damgaardTorrey (Kelso) + Gray  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2015


After having climbed Mt. Sneffels and Crag Crest the days before, the views around Torrey's and Gray's were less impressive, but still a pretty fun climb up Kelso ridge to Torreys and down via normal route on Gray's.

mgriffin015Cold August day on Grays and Torreys  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2015


Cold, cloudy day, usually I summit in a t shirt but the clouds stayed low and had to stay bundled up. Great views once the clouds cleared and super nice trail, about 300+ people on the trail on a saturday, but I guess that comes with being a popular route close to the city

Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2015
Had to park about a mile and a half down the road. Great weather on the way up. Planned to climb Torrey's also but the weather wasn't looking good so I descended the way I came. About an hour after leaving the summit the thunderstorms rolled in. Hiked the last 3 miles in the rain. Great day on the mountain though. Can't wait to climb more.

Date Climbed: Nov 1, 2014


Edwards, Grays and Torreys together from Stevens Gulch trailhead solo. Road open and clear (might change with snow in the forecast!). Lower trail dry, but snow packed up higher, traction can come in handy.

SwithichNot Bad.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2014
The weather held till I was off, which was nice. The rollerblading is really helping. I only felt the elevation about 100 feet from the summit. Dropped off to the saddle with Torreys, to grab Torreys. I mean, this is Colorado climbing in a nutshell, pretty much a freeway to the summit. What more could you ask for?
