shknbkefrom Torreys/Kelso Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2009


Made a big loop on a bluebird day by going up the south ridge of Kelso, across Kelso Ridge to Torreys, over to Grays, down the south ridge of Grays to Ruby. Long day but avoided the huge masses of people on the trail. Counted 119 people between Torreys and Grays! The knife edge on Kelso is fun, but too short!

Nice traverse with Torreys. Would definately come back much earlier to do some of the couloirs on both mountains.

Standard route. Really cold for July and lots of people for a Thursday. Still, a very fun day even getting blasted with a wind driven "wintery mix".

The road to the trailhead really can't be called a "road" It's more like a training ground for trench warfare. We were lucky to hitch a ride up and down. The trail itself is great. Grays is a great workout and is an easy combo with Torreys if you afford yourself the time to do it.

Down standard trail and back to Bakersville. My estimate was that over 100 people climbed or attempted Grays that day and this was a Thursday.

Went late to avoid the crowds because it didn't look like t-storms. We were right and didn't see a person above 12k feet. Nice afternoon.

Up the standard trail from Stevens Gulch. Rental car wouldn't make it, but hitching a ride was easy. After four days hiking in CO, I'm beginning to think that almost all the locals owns a dog or two, and brings them on the trail. Kinda fun. I wish I had my dog, too. She would love this stuff.

Standard route up to the saddle to Torreys, then Grays. Lots of snow but some people were still in sneakers. As one trip report was titled, the road is tougher than the hike.

Conditions were great. The best glissading of my life off the saddle of Torreys and Grays. A very fun climb!

Date Climbed: Aug 15, 1994


This was my first 14er climb (in 1994). The trail is well-marked and accessible. We had fantastic blue-sky weather that day and there were a lot of people on the mountain. Loved it.

We had a group of 6, everyone had a great time. There was about 3 inches of fresh snow in the couloir with a wet consolidated layer underneath. Crampons were not needed since the conditions were ideal for kicking steps.

Went with a big group up Grey's (standard hiking route). Had intentions of doing Torrey's as well, but most weren't up for it.
