Genghis Climber

A beautiful day for climbing allowed for a relatively quick ascent of Gray's followed by Torrey's. The weather was great and the snow held up well the whole trip

Had a great trip up Grays Peak today. Betsy and I took 3 friends that had never climbed a 14ner. 2 of which had never climbed anything about 10000ft. We had a perfect day with great weather and views. Around 2:30, right before getting back to the trailhead, we saw a few snowflakes, but then it cleared up again.

The conditions on the trail are good. However, it gets a little treacherous during the afternoon when the snow on the trail gets slushy.

Lost Rat is an awesome route! Everything was sunny, but oh man, was it windy on the ridge and summit! My first glissading experience was excellent. Thanks to Chris and the dudes from Wyoming for helping me dig out my truck.

Somewhat cold at the top, rained the last mile down, and zero visibility.... bummer. But of course a hike is always a hike, and that's always good:-) Followed it with the saddle to Torreys.

Solo climb at dawn. Beautiful hike up in partial fog, only to find 50+ peak baggers on the summit. Bleh...

Fun climb, that has spectacular views of Kelso Ridge and the Dead Dog Couloir. From summit, descending the normal route is quik and easy.

Pretty simple and straight forward climb that was

fairly uneventful. Saw mountain goats on the summit.

The large crowd of climbers was about all I remember

about this one.

This was my first summit of a 14er and I was hooked! I've summited Grays five times to date. Solo twice. With my students once. And with my wife and dogs twice. Abe & Milo have bagged five 14ers to date. We love Grays and Torreys!

Hiked both Grays and Torreys, the wind had a nasty bite, but the clear skies allowed amazing views. A lot of Mtn. Goats along the trail, passed 52 hikers on the way down and one stray dog following a group of hikers to the top.

Easy but cold. Spectacular view. Climbed early enough that we had the summit entirely to ourselves.

Long beautiful and isolated route on a perfect winter day! Warm, sunny, and thorougly exhausting at about 12 hours car-to-car.

We started climbing under a full moon at midnight, reaching the summit well in time to watch the sunrise over the eastern plains. Six of us snuggled under three sleeping bags to stay warm in the 20 degree summit temps and then had sausage and eggs cooked on a stove on top while mountain goats checked us out.

I climbed Grays and Torreys that day. It was quite windy on the traverse between the two. There were many mountain goats out that day as well.
