gunnersmithDead Dog Couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2007


This was a nice couloir with a great finish, but it was crowded (14 people climbed it this day) and there were definitely a few cases of rock-fall. I took my brother-in-law, and this was his first crampon/ice axe experience.

A great day. Haliku and I ascended Dead Dog Couloir to the summit and then headed on to Grays. It was good to summit after a previous attempt on this route and an arduous attempt on Mt. Brooks in the Alaska Range about two weeks ago. I needed to get up something!
7/20/08 - Climbed Grays and Torreys with my wife for our, belated, anniversary 14er tradition.

Climbed up the couloir and then tagged Grays. Got to the couloir as the sun was coming up, the snow got soft quick. Melting was causing rocks to come flying down, bring a helmet.

AlpinistDead Dog  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 27, 2007


Flew in from Chicago Friday night and slept at the TH. Parked just past the old saw mill on Saturday morning, snowshoed in and camped below the mine shack. Climbed Kelso Mountain in the afternoon as a warm-up for Torreys Peak. Woke up early Sunday and climbed the Dead Dog Couloir on Torreys with Mike. Conditions were perfect. We had a mostly cloudless sky and excellent snow in the couloir. The snow on the final summit ridge was a bit powdery but no real problem. We intended to climb Grays Peak too, but heavy clouds started to roll in and we opted to head back. Descended via the south saddle and Grays Peak trail, broke camp and hiked out.

Ascended the Emperor with Andy, Brenta, Mt man dan, and zenalpinist. Snow was in decent shape for the climb up, weather held up nicely. Skied down the NW face on windslab and hard pack until 12K, got 1K of good spring corn in. Many wet slides visible in the surrounding areas.

Made our way down an easy saddle between Grays and Torreys, and then hiked the rest of the way up to the summit of Torreys. Nice double bagger day with beautiful weather.

spannring29My second 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2006


Like so many others, I hiked Torreys in succession with Grays, but the summits could not have been different. On Grays, it was me and one other person sheltering ourselves from the wind and cold. A short time later, on Torreys, there was a crowd basking in the warm sun of a June day. You gotta love this state.

winterfaeKelso trail  Sucess!


Did Torreys/Grays as my first solo 14ers...used the Kelso trail at the advice of an avid hiker and am so glad I did. Loved the scrambling and chose a few of the more difficult routes along the way. Beautiful morning...was 2nd to summit...made it down just as it started to rain.
