Harry sugar snow covering most rock including the knife edge. Spent lots of time uncovering holds and trying to kick steps into powder covered scree, not a lot of fun. Could have used snowshoes for decent, lots of post holing. summit all to ourselves. Eight hours for a four hour trip.

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.

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!

8/25/04- 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!

9/4/16- grays and torreys with alexis. clouds moved in while we were above 13,000' and we received some snow on torreys!
