chrissy's 1st fourteeneer--I said is was easy, she had a difference of opinion. best hike of my life--great weather, and such a beautiful mountain--but the difference, i discovered, (in spite of the masses), was sharing this special place with someone you love. on the way down, when i asked her "was it worth it?"-she said-"ask me in a couple of days"

After experiencing mountain lighting on Grays. Shane and I dashed across the traverse to quickly bagged 14er number 3 on my list. Departing the mountain we barely escaped the wrath of snow pellets.

We had the time and wanted to take a route that was less heavily traveled. The Chihuahua Gulch trail was fantastic! Didn't see another person until we reached the summit. Highly recommend this route. Great hike!

Never gone up Torreys or Greys but Kelso Ridge was absolutely fantastic. Do not even bother to go the standard route. Had Torreys to ourselves for about 5 minutes which was nice, though MASSIVE amounts of people on the way down from Greys.

Yeah, it seems that I always have to take a harder way down than up... but Kelso was awesome - my first serious exposure on a hike.

My 2nd summit of Torreys (1st was via Dead Dog Couloir a few years ago). This is a great climb, and we had perfect weather. There was just a short snowfield to cross after the crux below the summit (top of Dead Dog Couloir), but it was soft and easy to traverse without crampons. Ascended via the first dihedral and around the edge of the second on the crux. The knife edge was not nearly as intimidating as I expected- only one move that was a bit sketchy without pro.

Crowded but a good way to bag a couple of peaks in one day. Took my girlfriend up her first 14er via the Grays Peak Trail. Can't wait to try Dead Dog or Kelso Ridge.

3:00 up. Dry all the way up to the knife-edge crux above Dead Dog. A little slippery crossing hard snow after the crux at the top of Dead Dog. Great glissade down from normal trail starting below the Grays/Torreys saddle.

Came to within 100 ft. on Kelso ridge due to bad conditions and threatening weather. Will be back soon for the top.

Awesome day with a little rain after noon to cool me down. I watched a three man team with a dog have a close call climbing the face to the summit as an avalanche came within about 10 feet of their party. Fortunately, the made it safely to the summit. Good times and climb safe!

This route would be an excellent intro to third class ridge scrambling for anyone interested. The fourth class sections that exist are avoidable with patient route finding (but fun and short if you feel up to the challenge), and the knife-edge crux is short, easy and exhilirating at the same time. Just don't knock any rocks down into Dead Dog couloir. Climbed this with a coating of new snow on the shaded north side of the ridge, and ticked off Gray's while we were there. (Might as well, right?)

Shallow new layer on frozen slush, pretty good steps until the top. Both couloirs are a little thin on snow in spots. Wintry conditions.

After summiting Gray's took the saddle over to Torrey's. The snow was excellent, as was the weather. Fun time all around.
