Grays & Torreys  Sucess!

2nd try is the charm  Sucess!

This was to be my first CO 14er when I tried it in Sept. 2011 in running clothes (gear hadn't arrived with me yet). Surprised for snow, drifts above my knees (not good for breathable tennis shoes), and white out. This time around, PERFECTest weather - light wind, cool temps, plenty of sunshine. Bagged Torreys also. Totally worth the 2nd attempt :)

First COL 14er!  Sucess!

Amazing day, made my first 14er. Thought about heading to Torreys, but I wanted to be able to walk in the evening.

Long slog up the road

started early, tons of snow, the approach road was a hike in itself. Made some great friends on my way down!

No big deal  Sucess!

Avoid via Stevens Gulch unless skiiable or looping over from Torreys.

Plenty of snow  Sucess!

Cloud level hung around 12.5k - 13k all day with temps in the mid 20's higher up and plenty of snow. Micro spikes would have been perfect for the conditions that day. It's always amazing to see peoples clothing choice on an easy 14er on a Saturday. Saw many shorts, sweatshirts and even a crocs, shorts, no gloves and light coat combo. He was surprisingly high when I passed so I assume he made it but he had to have been miserable, he looked it. The weather was windy, snowy and cold. I get that you could easily run up the trail in tennies, shorts and a t-shirt on a nice day but wow. It was all snow from at least 13k which could be knee deep off the trail in places.

Double  Sucess!

Not too busy as far as Grays goes. Perfect weather. Moved quick. Hit Grays, Torreys, back to Grays and down to the TH.

G+T via Kelso  Sucess!

Great day, if a bit boring climb to Grays.

From Bakerville  Sucess!

Great to get up early after camping in Bakerville and beat the hordes. On the way down, climbed down class 3 to get to what was left of a glissadeable snowfield, rapped my axe on a diving board-like boulder, gave a radness call out, and hit it with an exaggerated bicycle-style leap onto the snow. Good for some g.n.a.r. points. Maybe 1,000 feet. Good soft snow, even at 10 a.m.

Dog Day  Sucess!

There were about 200 people and 50 dogs on the trail. Done with Torreys. Great trail. Great weather.

Buys day on Grays!  Sucess!

I had to park about a mile below the TH. Wow. It was busy like Best Buy on black Friday! 2:27 to the summit, 1:32 back to the car. Fun, easy 14er.
