PocketsOfBlueNice hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2007


Hiked up Grays and Torreys on four hours' sleep after an eight-hour drive from Salt Lake. J and I met up with a couple friends and we were up and down in a hurry. Beautiful day, easy grades to the summit, great views.

KieferKelso Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 28, 2008


New friend, Jeff and myself sumitted Torrey's Peak via Kelso Ridge yesterday. In the winter time, this ridge is NOT to be underestimated. The ridge itself took us almost exactly 5 hours to complete. Had some good weather and scary wind bursts but it was a very long, very satisfying day. Sunset from the summit was absolutely amazing! The 1st crux was pretty hairy as we climbed a lower 5th class chimeny on the south side. Challenging & rewarding day.

Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2004


Hiked the North Slopes to Grays and the South Slopes to Torreys from Stevens Gulch Trailhead. Clouds hovered around the summit and I considered going back to the trailhead instead of heading up to the top. Decided to go for it and the weather improved.

This was the first of many climbs of Torreys. Most climbs were from the Stevens Gulch trailhead on the normal route combined with Grays. I have done variations of Kelso Ridge 3 times. One of those times was from the Grizzly Gulch side meeting it above the Kelso saddle. I have also hiked over from Loveland Pass to Torreys and then down to Stevens Gulch trailhead.

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.

argothorGrays and Torreys from Stephens Gulch  Sucess!
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.
