What a fun climb. I loved the exposure, and the 4th class climbing. We did it without ropes, but we came down the standard route. Cant say i would reccomend downclimbing the ridge without a rope and protection.

Did it with Grays as my second 14er. So many people on the summit, I could not sit down. Next time will be Kelso ridge.

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.

Choice climb. Left at 5:45a and had the whole ridge/mtn to myself. Unfortunately, the same couldn't be said for Grays.

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.
