Left the campsite at 0330 so that we could reach the summit by sunrise. We were at the summit by 0600 for a beautiful and typical Colorado rising sun. The trail up is very easy to follow with many switchbacks. We were the first people on the summit this morning. Spent about 40 minutes at the top before traversing over to Torrey's Peak.



More pictures from the traverse that I haven't posted on here can be seen here.

6th and favorite CO 14er. Nothing like strong High Pressure to keep the rain and storms away. Summited with clear, beautiful skies at 3:00 pm and enjoyed this last summit before headin back East to VA.

This is a crowded mountain because of its relative ease and it proximity to Denver & Summit County. This was true an the July dat that we hiked Grays & Torreys. With this being said, the throngs of people did not take away from this majestic mountain. These two maountains are two of the best in Colorado and not to be missed.

Takes about 2 1/2 to 3 hours to get to the summit and it is a great site from the top.

Did this and Torreys together via the Chihuahua Gulch TH. Didn't see another person until we reached the summit and saddle. Great day - loved the less traveled route.

The descent into the saddle and associated ascent onto Torreys are a schlog. Nice views of the couloirs, however.

My cousin and I had three days to acclimate to altitude (we should have had more time), but we made it. Not bad for a couple flatlanders from Ohio. I really enjoyed it and wish I lived closer.

Very easy hike to the summit. A great way to tick two 14ers of in one day.

My first 14er. Was a good day over all; good weather and while there were alot of people, I met alot of great ones. Too tired to get Torreys too, guess I'll have to come back with more experience and get Kelso Ridge!

I first ticked this one off after ascending Torrey's Kelso Ridge route. It had rained hard that morning so the crowds were refreshingly sparse. Not so on my subsequent trip. We had to deal with a pair of obstinate hikers who didn't see the need to yield to a faster group (us) descending at a jog to escape impending weather. Rather than cause a scene we quietly cut the switchback and continued on our way. Can't really blame them, they were scared and we shouldn't have been there in the first place. We pushed for the 'summit' in zero visibility to make a worthwhile training day out of it rather than turn back early. Why? We'd been on top of Gray's before. Avoid the tourist routes on Colorado 14'ers, train low, climb faster: climb safer.
