ScottTorreys  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2017


Kimberly and I hiked Torreys Peak, a Colorado 14er. As expected, it was very crowded, but still a nice hike anyway. We saw four marmots and many pikas. This was Kimberly's first 14er since her heart surgery, so we didn't do Grays.

Great day to climb two Fourteeners. Did the Grays & Torreys combo. If you look to north and west, you can see Mount Sniktau. Spectacular climb. Happy Trails!

Great hike. Lots of snow, microspikes necessary. Had a great glissade down from the middle of the bowl between the mountains!

kronshage3Gray's + Torrey's Combo  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 23, 2016


Started around 7AM. Was able to make it all the way to trailhead. There was a few inches of snow on the road, however. Did the standard combo route by ascending Gray's first then crossing the saddle to Torrey's. Followed a separate trail down from the bottom of saddle. No need for snowshoes. Did not bring crampons, but would have been nice on a few sections. LOTS of wind on the saddle and Torrey's summit. Back at car around 2PM.

drootGrays and Torreys via Kelso Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2016


Climbed both Grays and Torreys by Kelso ridge. Parking lot was full by about 4am on a Saturday. Had the mountain to ourselves the entire way up Kelso ridge, but could see the lines of people heading up the standard route. Kelso ridge was a blast, had a little route finding mishap near the top and managed to somehow completely circumnavigate the knife edge. Once at the top of Torreys it was crowds of people all the way to Grays and down. Lots of snow in late August made for some slippery conditions from all the packed snow. 500+ people on the mountain made for some traffic jams on the way down.

dunking_deutschmanNice hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2010


Cool hike. Had to park a ways down the road due to huge rocks and potholes-- it made for a long hike, but I got good use out of my microspikes for the first time. I climbed Grays on a separate hike a couple years ago because I like to gain 3,000 ft for each and every 14er summit.

Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2016


Climbed up Dead Dog and then skied down Emperor. Wanted the longer descent, Emperor had about 3000' of continuous snow. Fun route and would do it again.

damgaardTorrey (Kelso) + Gray  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2015


After having climbed Mt. Sneffels and Crag Crest the days before, the views around Torrey's and Gray's were less impressive, but still a pretty fun climb up Kelso ridge and down via Gray's.

Did this one along with Grays. Followed the standard route up the Grays Peak Trail to Grays, then over to Torreys and back down. Great day!

Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2015


Though it looks like a harder peak from the trail, i would definitely say Grays was the tougher of the 2.

Got the summit on my 2nd try. Hiked from I-70 since I did not have a high clearance vehicle. Great views.

Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2014


Weather wasn't looking promising, but we got lucky. Despite a bad forecast, there were 50 people on the summit on this particular Sunday. All college-aged; I suppose more experienced hikers stayed home after checking the weather.

Kelso Ridge was a great class 3.
