After Greys, Torreys felt positively abandoned.

There was quite a bit of snow on the summit. There were some people waving a flag on the summit since this was just after 9/11.

Combined with Grays Peak. Hiked with HM. Wind was crazy on the saddle...50 mph+...Way too many people, but that's what you get so close to Denver. Nice views from the top.

Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2006


After waiting out rainy weather for a few days in RMNP, the forecast indicated clearing the next day. I headed for the the trailhead and camped for the night(wet, cloudy, cold). No one else in trailhead area all night but starting about 5AM some vehicles entered the parking area(just as cloud cover was breaking) and several started ahead of me. It was one of those windy days when the left over clouds zoom overhead like race cars and the wind moves you around at summit. Cant remember details of time etc., but summited both Torrey's and Gray's and had both peaks to myself - a rarity according to other logs here, seemed like when I was on summit of one other people where in saddle or other peak. Fairly Straightforward ascent.

After a week of perfect sunny weather, the clouds started moving in when I reached the saddle from Grays.

I made it a fast climb.

Blue skies gave way to cute little fluffy clouds and mild temperatures for a perfect day on Kelso Ridge.

Bad luck with the weather the night before in camp and also in the morning but it cleared. Traversed from Grays. Has more of a feel of a true summit compared to Grays and it has the better views IMHO. A lot of people though.

Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2010


Light rain and thus wet rock made for an interesting start to the ascent of Kelso, although luckily it dried up a bit before the knife edge. Ridge and summit were mostly socked in with cloud and fog making for very low visibility and cool temps (for August).

I climbed Torreys with some people I met the previous weekend down in the San Juans. We started at 5AM. It was pretty windy most of the time. We encountered two other hikers on the ridge. There were a handful of people on Torreys. We rested there a few minutes before heading over to Grays.

Climbed Torreys via Kelso Ridge. After summiting Torreys, traversed to Grays Peak and then to Mount Edwards. Fun scramble, great views!

I'm not into scree slogs, so I don't think I would have done this peak without Kelso's Ridge or Dead Dog.

Slept at the TH, started around 7:45 and did Greys and Torreys. On the way down, we did an amazing glissade. These were 14ers number 14 and 15 for me. These were also are 8th and 9th 13k+ peak in 3 days. Cool views and an amazing area. Definitely worth the visit.
