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

Although a Friday, the trail was covered with people, their dogs, and children.

chubbles365First 14er  Sucess!
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.

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?

Cisco1974Chaplain Hike 2  Sucess!

Cisco1974

Our base chaplain at FAMC took a bunch of us to hike this peak in the summer of 1995. I was in the best shape I had been in since I had wrestled in high school and I still had difficulty with this one. I remember taking three steps and stopping to catch my breath. We saw mountain goats with kids. When we got to the top I remember smoking a cigarette! Man! We ran most of the way down after we got out of the rocks.

Enjoyed this one just like I have enjoyed all of the 14ers I've had the privilege to climb. What's not to like? And the Gesellschaft! Fabelhaft.

OnagerEasy hike from Torreys  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2014

My 10th and 11th Fourteeners and Kieva's 3rd & 4th Fourteener! Kieva and I hit the approach trail at 4:00 am and made it back to the trailhead at 11:15 am. We climbed Torreys Peak via the Kelso Ridge, a class 3 rock climb with a ton of exposure. We climbed some class 4 rock as well and had to cross a "Knife Edge" towards the end of the ridge, a section that you must carefully navigate because it was only inches wide. We summited Torreys Peak and then took an easy trail up neighboring 14er Grays Peak. An awesome climb.

Great day, did both Grays and Torreys. Still a lot of snow in some places. No traction devices or axes needed though.

Date Climbed: May 31, 2014

Solo ski descent of Lost Rat Couloir after skinning up standard route. Able to ski off summit pretty much continuously, one short rock band I had to cross. Good conditions, but developing a runnel that you have to watch out for near the bottom.

DarrenKnezekTough Day with Tougher Weather  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 10, 2014

DarrenKnezek

Had to park near I-70 because the forest road had too much snow. This added 6 more miles to an already 8 miles day. Went to do Torrey's via Dead Dog Couloir but when we got near, it had a fresh slide at the base with higher slide potential up higher.
So, to be safer we chose to do the Gray's Trail up Grays.
Needed snowshoes at 12,400 all the way to the top. Killer summit because of the bad weather rolling in. Whiteout on the way down until 13,000.
Did it with several members of the Utah Climbing Club!
