MtnLdrFailed attempt at Grays and Torreys
Date Climbed: Mar 8, 2008


Unfortunately, my brother and I were plagued with poor weather during the entire week. It seemed as though every time the skis or shoes hit the snow, the wind would come up and it would start snowing. Oh well, the mountain will always be there, and I will return!

Marni and I summited Grays at sunrise and ate breakfast up there alone in our sleeping bags. Then we summited Torreys shortly after and headed down before the crowds got heavy. These were our first 14er summits together.

Camped overnight & hit this up the next day-had a rare break in the weather but it was still windy as all hell and cold at the top. But at least I got to see the sun! Some recent slide activity on Kelso and Torreys.

Hiked the North Slopes to Grays and the South Slopes to Torreys from Stevens Gulch Trailhead. The road to the trailhead was washed out from a recent storm and I barely made it through in my Honda Pilot. This was my first 14er combo.

Date Climbed: Jul 23, 1986


This was the first of many climbs of Grays. Most climbs were from Stevens Gulch trailhead via the standard route and combined with Torreys. However I have also climbed Grays from Peru drainage and combined with Edwards and Ruby. Another time was from Stevens and combined with Edwards. I have also snowshoed in from I-70 to climb Grays.

Wife, dog and I. Headed up from Horseshoe Basin. We were headed for Edwards, but wife didn't feel good, so she headed back. Dog and I descended south ridge of Grays and went over to Ruby instead.

Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2004


My first 14er attempt. Got turned away at 13.4k by nasty storm. Started too late in the morning though. Way too many people on this 14er.

MattGreeneBeginner Days
Grays was my 2nd fourteener, and I made every mistake there that a beginner possibly could. One time I slept out a blizzard in the mine between Kelso and Torreys (the wheelbarrow and shovel at the back of the mine helped me dig out the next day), another time I had a whole layer of snow collapse (and fortunately not slide) underneath me on the way up Kelso. Teaching yourself about the mountains is full of danger, but fortunately I was able to run the gauntlet of death. Grays still stands in my mind as a mountain that opened my eyes to the high summits of Colorado, and to the joys of summitting in winter.

Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2005


Grays was the first 14er I did after moving to Colorado in 2001. It was also the first 14er I did with Odin, my faithful Golden Retriever. Odin went on to hike 16 more 14ers with me. But at Thanksgiving of 2004, Odin passed away at the much too young age of six. This day I was joined by two friends to say goodbye to Odin by scattering his ashes atop Grays.

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2001


I had just moved to Colorado, and Grays and Torreys would be my first 14ers since moving here. The day started kind of gray, but didn't look threating. Easily bagged Grays and then headed over to Torreys. And while resting upon the summit it started to spit little balls of sheet. So at that point I started down, and when I got to the saddle between Grays and Torreys it was nearly whiteout conditions. Further down the snow turned to a cold rain. Fortunately I was dressed for the occasion, however many other folks were hiking in cotton sweatshirts, jeans, sneakers and no rain gear. At this point I'm thinking I am going to read about a lot of people who die due to the elements on these mountains.

Torreys as well. A snowstorm hit while on the mountain and lasted till the next day which limited the hiking options for the rest of the week.
