Torreys was my first 14-er. At the time, I was such a flatlander that it really felt like a slog. It's amazing how perspective changes with experience.

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2001


I had just moved to Colorado, and Grays and Torreys would be my first 14ers since moving here. The day started kind of gray, but didn't look threating. Easily bagged Grays and then headed over to Torreys. And while resting upon the summit it started to spit little balls of sheet. So at that point I started down, and when I got to the saddle between Grays and Torreys it was nearly whiteout conditions. Further down the snow turned to a cold rain. Fortunately I was dressed for the occasion, however many other folks were hiking in cotton sweatshirts, jeans, sneakers and no rain gear. At this point I'm thinking I am going to read about a lot of people who die due to the elements on these mountains.

Did the Grays/Torreys combination. Nice day, still snowy packed over most of the area. Lots of post-holing that day, and lots of skiers and snowboarders.

A fine day of climbing solo. Snow made the final 200 ft or so kinda of difficult in approach shoes.

We took the Kelso Ridge challenged and loved it! At the crux of the ridge we went right and down to avoid the bum slide. It was class 3 and just fine.

We climbed the south ridge after climbing Grays. An easy hike from the saddle up to the summit. Hope to try the ridge someday.

AspenRoute Climbed: Stevens Gulch TH (G-T saddle)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 16, 1998


Climbing this late in the season was a tad tricky. There were lots of ice on the trail from the timberline on up. I slipped a few times and one of my friends, Daisuke, did it with his basketball shoes. LoL! We were young and daring, but we summitted both peaks! I'm recording this as the first time I took Torreys & Grays. There were other ascent up these peaks afterward but they're too many to mention.

Just signing the log. I've climbed Torreys several times and have been up there in all seasons. Some of the biggest avalanches I've ever seen (disregarding Nepal and the Cascades) were on the east face of Torreys during a three day heavy snowfall. A beautiful, fun peak in any season.

Great climb/hike, very happy to have made the full trip in 4:20 solo, with my first Class 3 pitches at such altitude (live in upstate NY). Decent exposure and a very fun route!

I was succesful and proud of it! When crossing the snowfield at the saddle between the peaks don't turn down too soon on the return back down to Stevens Gulch Trailhead, terrain is rougher there. My first twofer.
