Started at 6:00am. My partner didn’t take food, was sick. We were both hungover. Grays at 10:30 then Torreys. Snowed on the way back, Pretty easy hike.

This was my first summit of a 14er and I was hooked! I've summited Grays five times to date. Solo twice. With my students once. And with my wife and dogs twice. Abe & Milo have bagged five 14ers to date. We love Grays and Torreys!

Hiked both Grays and Torreys, the wind had a nasty bite, but the clear skies allowed amazing views. A lot of Mtn. Goats along the trail, passed 52 hikers on the way down and one stray dog following a group of hikers to the top.

Easy but cold. Spectacular view. Climbed early enough that we had the summit entirely to ourselves.

We started climbing under a full moon at midnight, reaching the summit well in time to watch the sunrise over the eastern plains. Six of us snuggled under three sleeping bags to stay warm in the 20 degree summit temps and then had sausage and eggs cooked on a stove on top while mountain goats checked us out.

I climbed Grays and Torreys that day. It was quite windy on the traverse between the two. There were many mountain goats out that day as well.

Kind a nasty up there, blowing snow, 45mph wind and about 15 degrees, but a great workout. Couldn't see much. 3000 feet vertical then down 500 and up 500 for torrey's, did it in 6 plus a bit hours.

Had a great hike summiting both Gray's Peak and Torrey's Peak from the Horseshoe Basin trailhead which is a little more difficult but a lot more remote than the busy trailhead on the I-70 side of the peaks.

Started from Stevens Gulch and did the standard route to to Grays, then traversed to Torreys. Glissaded down from the saddle back to the main trail for a round trip time of about 6 hours.

My first 14er-- a cold, unprepared solo hike. But the view from the top got me hooked to climbing the mountains of Colorado!

NIce hike in a beautiful area. The trail was very icy all the way to the summit with a 6 am start, so I moved a little slower than I would have liked......but a picture perfect day...so I can't complain. I didn't see anyone else on the trail until I was about a mile from the trailhead on the descent...which I hear is a rarity on this mountain. Good stuff.

Started up at 7:10AM, a bit cold but a rising sun. The mountain had a new dusting of snow which made the switchbacks very visable from below. Reached the summit at 9:00AM, a few icy spots on the way up, four people on top, beautiful views in all directions with new snow on most every peak. Signed the summit log, stayed about 10-12 mins then straight down to the saddle and over to Torreys Peak. My 2nd 14'er. Sweet!
