Solo ski descent of Lost Rat Couloir after skinning up standard route. Able to ski off summit pretty much continuously, one short rock band I had to cross. Good conditions, but developing a runnel that you have to watch out for near the bottom.
Had to park near I-70 because the forest road had too much snow. This added 6 more miles to an already 8 miles day. Went to do Torrey's via Dead Dog Couloir but when we got near, it had a fresh slide at the base with higher slide potential up higher.
So, to be safer we chose to do the Gray's Trail up Grays.
Needed snowshoes at 12,400 all the way to the top. Killer summit because of the bad weather rolling in. Whiteout on the way down until 13,000.
Did it with several members of the Utah Climbing Club!
Annual Colorado trip..Climbed with Torres. We ascended dead dog couloir on torres then traversed over to Grays. Long day as additional mileage was gained due to road closure! Both peaks were very exciting!!!Jim W
Climbed via Stevens Gulch. Didn't need snowshoes or crampons.
Hiked up from the small parking lot by the interstate as the road wasn't passable in a 2WD rental car. Great hike, but very windy. Good weather all day.
Great group of people. Gusty wind up to 60 mph made for an exciting hike. Also climbed Torreys.
Climbed multiple times
First 14er with my daughter, she loved it!
I did both Gray's and Torreys as an early birthday present!
Enjoyed a fun spring summit ski of Grays on a windy day. Snow was a lot of fun below the Grays-Torreys saddle, although a lot of terrain was melted out below 12,000'.
Summitted both Grey's and Torrey's.
Walk up. Shoulda went via Torreys Kelso Ridge
Mary and I climbed this as our first 14er as Colorado residents. We camped at the trailhead and started up at around 6AM. Unfortunately, we didn't see any goats. We were back at the car by noon and home in Fort Collins with plenty of time before my shift at 5PM.
Two hours and five minutes to the summit from the parking lot. Had to hike up the road a couple of miles to the TH due to a lack of parking but the road itself was in good shape. Four wheel drive was not a requirement.
I was off so said screw it and went to the mountains. Awesome views. Cold and windy
W/ dad & Jimmy
