Winter ascent of the pair, started at the bottom of the road, but surprisingly it was still drivable for about 2 1/2 miles. The trail is well packed down and snow shoes are not necessary. Yak-trax or mini-spikes may be helpful in a few hardpacked spots, but I didn't use them. Upper part of Grays is pretty dry, skis would be basically worthless.

Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2003

We did not expect to go after a two bagger this year, but as you climbers know this is a moderate climb if careful. We left from Stevens Gutlch. Had to bail fom the sedan rental on the approach when rocks/trail got too rough. But got to the trail-head and started the climb but churning elevation too fast. Daniel, my dear friend paid for it with altitiude sickness but made both. We actually lost the trail on the way up Grays and traversed the cleaveage South to North up to the summit of Torreys. I remember telling my friend Den to quit fricking bumping into me on the traverse as I did not want to fall into the bowl. And actually as my altimeter read above 14,000 feet, as were are on the grind up the South Face, my team did not think I/my altimeter was this full of shit. We all made the summit at 1030 hrs. 14,267 feet and could not eat. Almost threw up.......... But had to go on as we had one more to go.

PS I hope no other human being ever rents that rental sedan we took up to the trailhead

Started at 5am and had the peak mostly to myself. Torreys via Kelso Ridge makes a great obligatory combo with Grays. Fun route!

Great weather. I was surprised at how beautiful it was. I have put this hike off because of how busy it gets. It was busy but actually one of the most enjoyable I have done.

If it weren't for that sign on top of Grays, I'm not sure I would have found the ridge. ;-)

I've done this 14er combination several times over the years, but the most challenging was summitting Grays from the Horseshoe Basin side, then climbing up to Torreys, and returning to the vehicle by climbing over Grays a second time. Whew---what a day!

Climbed this one in combination with Grays. Did it by myself, with a bunch of other people on the trail. Next time I climb this one I am taking a friend and going up the Kelso ridge route. That looks like a lot of fun. This was #18 on my quest to hit all of the Official Colorado 14ers.

The approach road was a real challenge for my motorcycle. I only made it up half way and then hitchhiked the rest. Spent the night just above the tree line in Stevens Gulch. Moments after I got into my tent, there was a major hail storm. The next morning I did Torreys first and then Grays. See my Trip Report about doing seven 14ers in eight days.

Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2008
Did the Loveland Pass route with friends.Can't recall the exact date.I clocked until the last push to Torreys,and then had to slow down.Gotta work on the endurance,haha.

Weather looked iffy,so we descended into Chihuauah Gulch.A thunder boomer came along and helped us to get home a bit faster:).Discovered how much I like Oboz shoes-my feet felt great,and no blisters!
