Good to see you made it to the top of Grays! Its a nice introduction peak to the Sun Valley area but I'm sure you realized its just a big pile of in the rock quality is absolutely terrible in that part of the range. Next time you're here, be sure to put a few days aside to do the real fun stuff =)

It wasn't easy!

Especially via the route I took. Thanks for the kind words. I was not acclimated, so Grays was perfect for me.

I just posted my own trip report for High Dune at Great Sand Dunes NP where acclimation was a major factor for me, even though it's only 8,691 feet. However, a week later I summitted Mt. Evans (14,264') with far less trouble than that big pile of sand. Time spent at high altitude made all the difference!

Nice report, thanks for sharing!--mark d.
