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.

Kind a nasty up there, blowing snow, 45mph wind and about 15 degrees, but a great workout. Couldn't see much. 3000 feet vertical then down 500 and up 500 for torrey's, did it in 6 plus a bit hours.

Had a great hike summiting both Gray's Peak and Torrey's Peak from the Horseshoe Basin trailhead which is a little more difficult but a lot more remote than the busy trailhead on the I-70 side of the peaks.

Started from Stevens Gulch and did the standard route to to Grays, then traversed to Torreys. Glissaded down from the saddle back to the main trail for a round trip time of about 6 hours.

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.

myroneRoute Climbed: Standard (from Steven's Gulch) Date Climbed: Saturday August 28,2004  Sucess!


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.

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