My first 14er-- a cold, unprepared solo hike. But the view from the top got me hooked to climbing the mountains of Colorado!

NIce hike in a beautiful area. The trail was very icy all the way to the summit with a 6 am start, so I moved a little slower than I would have liked......but a picture perfect day...so I can't complain. I didn't see anyone else on the trail until I was about a mile from the trailhead on the descent...which I hear is a rarity on this mountain. Good stuff.

Started up at 7:10AM, a bit cold but a rising sun. The mountain had a new dusting of snow which made the switchbacks very visable from below. Reached the summit at 9:00AM, a few icy spots on the way up, four people on top, beautiful views in all directions with new snow on most every peak. Signed the summit log, stayed about 10-12 mins then straight down to the saddle and over to Torreys Peak. My 2nd 14'er. Sweet!

Beautiful day to begin with and then cold as hell by the time we reached the summit, no views to be had. By the time we got to Torreys it was clear skies and wonderful views.

Hiked Grays and traversed to Torreys. Scenic hike. Not difficult. Crowded (even though it was a Friday). Good starter 14er.

My wife and I climbed Grays and Torreys today with a group from the CMC boulder section. Had a wonderful time. There were hundreds/thousands of hikers on the trail -- it was the hike with Ed Viestus day, which we did not know about.

However, looking at the positive side, I thought it impossible to find that many Americans that would be willing/able to hike for 8 miles and 3000ft. It is good to see that many people interested in spending time outdoors.

Hiked up to the top, the first half is easy hike, but the second half was steep. I did hike up to the top, beautiful view. No rain or thunderstorm. very lucky

Woo hoo! Peak to peak in 20 minutes! 2 hrs from trailhead. Not bad for living at 1,200 ft ASL...

I've done Grays 7 or 8 times, always early in the year as a "conditioning" hike, about half the time traversing over to Torreys. Don't do this one for solitude.

Climbed in conjuction with Torrey's. What a great day and great weather. The summit of Gray's was full of nice folks with lots of nice dogs! The basin provides such a great backdrop to sit and stare at the world around you. Truly a beautiful cirque.

I got off the plane from Detroit and headed straight to the top of Grays and Torreys. Needless to say, I had a bad headache and was a little dizzy. There was no snow anywhere! Very unusual.

RatballsRoute Climbed: (1) Kelso Ridge on Torreys, and (2) Dead Dog Couloir on Torreys Date Climbed: (1) September 1995, and (2) June 22, 2003  Sucess!


(1) The second fourteneer I ever climbed, over from the Kelso Ridge on Torreys, with a friend who admitted a fear of heights. Gutsy fellow.

(2) Over from Dead Dog Couloir on Torreys. My first solo couloir climb, and, again, a blast: I was very fit, had great weather, a great climb, tagged two fourteeners, enjoyed the Mother of all Glissades from the summit of Grays down to the basin, and still got back to the Fort for lunch. My trip report is here.

I did this with my 11 year old nephew and it was a fun trip. Getting my Honda Accord to the trailhead was interesting. We encountered herd of mountain goats at about 13,000 ft. We got pretty close and the biggest one blocked the trail and we had to go around, as he started to dig his hoof into the ground and grunt. I did get a little sick fromt he altitude, but not too bad. Once on top the views were great. My nephew was not feeling up to Torreys, so we headed down.
