My first 14er joined by my two brother-in-laws. Glad to have the company for a fantastic hike. I'm glad I had a few days to get used to the altitude as I'm now a coastal Californian instead of the Rocky Coloradon that I used to be. Went over to Torreys to make my first 14er day a quick double.

Second time to visit Grays' summit. Solo trip with great weather. I love the view on the way up.

An interesting day as it was windy, cold, snowy and every other sort of nasty. Saw Kelso Ridge for the first time and skipped Torreys until I could climb her on Kelso Ridge. My first glissade too!

This is a good warm-up or intro 14er combo with Torrey's.

Nice climb, great wildflowers in the valley on the hike up. Huge herd of either Bighorn Sheep or Mountain Goats on the flanks of Gray's.

Climbed with Torreys Peak.

I've summited Grays 4 times now.

Once via Torreys Kelso Ridge, other via normal route.

This is a very nice trip, and two of mine have been leading groups

of CU students from the Residence Halls.

Very enjoyable, and not too terribly much traffic and decent weather

in early September.

gemgoddisRoute Climbed: Stephen's Gulch Trailhead Date Climbed: May 2002  Sucess!


This was my second 14er. We got a late start (9am)due to waiting for the rest of our group. I was a little more prepared this time in that I had purchased a Camelbak (as opposed to carrying 3 liter bottles of water).

This is a very beautiful hike with plenta of flora and fauna to be seen. We took our time to stop and take lots of pictures and to enjoy the scenery. Hardly any snow on the trail, but it was a bit muddy and wet in some places. The last few switchbacks to the summit were exhausting, but what a reward!!

After pictures and lunch we headed down the saddle towards Torrey's.

Lost Rat was snow filled and a lot of fun, especially the righthand variation that goes up past "the rascal". The rest of the hike after the couloir was a plod and only worth it to tag the top.

My 2nd fourteener. The clouds rolled in near the summit and we couldn't see more than 20 feet in any direction. Still need to go back for Torrey's.

A fun training hike. I took my 59.5 years young father on his first 14er. Being from Pa he wasn't used to the altitude. By taking it slow with plenty of water we made it. My third visit to this top.

Summited this one along with Torrey's the first time with my father. Great day. The second time was with a group of friends. Another great day!

Knocked off this bad boy before heading over to Torreys. Great weather and great scenery the whole way. There were a few mountain goats running around at the pass between the two 14ers, I guess they really like this area. Not too difficult for 14ers, the only difficult part is driving up the very rough road to the trailhead.
