El_CapitanRoute Climbed: saddle from Grays Date Climbed: October 8, 2005  Sucess!
There was a bit of snow on Grays but passble without gear. There was a big dump the next day so it is probably different now. 2:45 up to Grays, 1:00 across saddle to Torreys, 2:00 down.

Fog on the ridge between Grays and Torreys made route-finding tougher, but we just stayed on the ridge and were fine. Sliding down the snow on the way down was a rush!

Good winter climb. No avy hazards except for the approach. Found it easier to descent the ascent route than to go down the regular route due to avy conditions.

A nice, close, easy peak to climb. Not isolated like some, but boasts an impressive view. Saw some mountain goats not but 10 yards off the trail--they didn't seem too worried about us. If only it were hunting season.

This was a super fun route! I slept in my pickup at the TH Friday night and decided to get going at 5 am as I wasn't sleeping terribly well. The sun had yet to rise as I gained the saddle between Torrey's and Kelso; but the remaining light from the night's full moon lit the way. Perhaps I did not take the time to find the easiest way around a couple of the initial cruxes because the 'knife edge' section seemed a bit anticlimatic. It's position is fantastic though-I sat straddling the ridge just before the white block, took some photos and watched the sunrise for several minutes before heading on. How serene, and within sight of I-70, go figure... The rest of the hike was no less spectacular, visually, though physically mundane as I headed over to Grays and back to the TH via the main trail. Highly reccommended!!

Climbed Grays first and then traversed to Torreys. Very well maintained trail with lots of signs. Many other hikers for a Monday. Must be really busy on a summer weekend.

We started at around 6:30 and summitted around 9:00 AM. Beautiful day, no clouds, but it was rather windy. We just managed to beat the crowds which began pouring up the slopes as we descended. Great climb!

My second 14er, and my first in the quest for them all!

Maybe one or two folks back then, not crowded. A good welcome-to-Colorado hike!

interesting ridge. not as tough as it first appears to be. some route desicions may challenge an inexperienced mountaineer yet it is still a recommendable choice for a first venture into class 3 terrain. the knife edge was a nice rush!

The ridge is in perfect condition right now. Took me and Brandon 4 1/2 hours to do the route including running up Grays as well. Super-fun ridge run on 3rd and 4th class rock!

Took a Friday off work to hike Gray's and Torrey's Peak. The crowd was not bad at all and oh what a beautiful day.
