Beautiful day to begin with and then cold as hell by the time we reached the summit, no views to be had. By the time we got to Torreys it was clear skies and wonderful views.

Hiked Grays and traversed to Torreys. Scenic hike. Not difficult. Crowded (even though it was a Friday). Good starter 14er.

My wife and I climbed Grays and Torreys today with a group from the CMC boulder section. Had a wonderful time. There were hundreds/thousands of hikers on the trail -- it was the hike with Ed Viestus day, which we did not know about.



However, looking at the positive side, I thought it impossible to find that many Americans that would be willing/able to hike for 8 miles and 3000ft. It is good to see that many people interested in spending time outdoors.

Hiked up to the top, the first half is easy hike, but the second half was steep. I did hike up to the top, beautiful view. No rain or thunderstorm. very lucky

Woo hoo! Peak to peak in 20 minutes! 2 hrs from trailhead. Not bad for living at 1,200 ft ASL...

I've done Grays 7 or 8 times, always early in the year as a "conditioning" hike, about half the time traversing over to Torreys. Don't do this one for solitude.

Climbed in conjuction with Torrey's. What a great day and great weather. The summit of Gray's was full of nice folks with lots of nice dogs! The basin provides such a great backdrop to sit and stare at the world around you. Truly a beautiful cirque.

I got off the plane from Detroit and headed straight to the top of Grays and Torreys. Needless to say, I had a bad headache and was a little dizzy. There was no snow anywhere! Very unusual.

(1) The second fourteneer I ever climbed, over from the Kelso Ridge on Torreys, with a friend who admitted a fear of heights. Gutsy fellow.



(2) Over from Dead Dog Couloir on Torreys. My first solo couloir climb, and, again, a blast: I was very fit, had great weather, a great climb, tagged two fourteeners, enjoyed the Mother of all Glissades from the summit of Grays down to the basin, and still got back to the Fort for lunch. My trip report is here.

I did this with my 11 year old nephew and it was a fun trip. Getting my Honda Accord to the trailhead was interesting. We encountered herd of mountain goats at about 13,000 ft. We got pretty close and the biggest one blocked the trail and we had to go around, as he started to dig his hoof into the ground and grunt. I did get a little sick fromt he altitude, but not too bad. Once on top the views were great. My nephew was not feeling up to Torreys, so we headed down.

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.
