chicagotransplantStevens Gulch Trio  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 1, 2014


Edwards, Grays and Torreys together from Stevens Gulch trailhead solo. Road open and clear (might change with snow in the forecast!). Lower trail dry, but snow packed up higher, traction can come in handy.

SwithichNot Bad.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2014
The weather held till I was off, which was nice. The rollerblading is really helping. I only felt the elevation about 100 feet from the summit. Dropped off to the saddle with Torreys, to grab Torreys. I mean, this is Colorado climbing in a nutshell, pretty much a freeway to the summit. What more could you ask for?

Cisco1974Chaplain Hike 2  Sucess!


Our base chaplain at FAMC took a bunch of us to hike this peak in the summer of 1995. I was in the best shape I had been in since I had wrestled in high school and I still had difficulty with this one. I remember taking three steps and stopping to catch my breath. We saw mountain goats with kids. When we got to the top I remember smoking a cigarette! Man! We ran most of the way down after we got out of the rocks.

Enjoyed this one just like I have enjoyed all of the 14ers I've had the privilege to climb. What's not to like? And the Gesellschaft! Fabelhaft.

OnagerEasy hike from Torreys  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2014


My 10th and 11th Fourteeners and Kieva's 3rd & 4th Fourteener! Kieva and I hit the approach trail at 4:00 am and made it back to the trailhead at 11:15 am. We climbed Torreys Peak via the Kelso Ridge, a class 3 rock climb with a ton of exposure. We climbed some class 4 rock as well and had to cross a "Knife Edge" towards the end of the ridge, a section that you must carefully navigate because it was only inches wide. We summited Torreys Peak and then took an easy trail up neighboring 14er Grays Peak. An awesome climb.

chicagotransplantLost Rat Ski  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 31, 2014


Solo ski descent of Lost Rat Couloir after skinning up standard route. Able to ski off summit pretty much continuously, one short rock band I had to cross. Good conditions, but developing a runnel that you have to watch out for near the bottom.

DarrenKnezekTough Day with Tougher Weather  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 10, 2014
Had to park near I-70 because the forest road had too much snow. This added 6 more miles to an already 8 miles day. Went to do Torrey's via Dead Dog Couloir but when we got near, it had a fresh slide at the base with higher slide potential up higher.
So, to be safer we chose to do the Gray's Trail up Grays.
Needed snowshoes at 12,400 all the way to the top. Killer summit because of the bad weather rolling in. Whiteout on the way down until 13,000.
Did it with several members of the Utah Climbing Club!

Hiked up from the small parking lot by the interstate as the road wasn't passable in a 2WD rental car. Great hike, but very windy. Good weather all day.
