What a perfect day for a view from the summit. My sister (Amy Klassen) and I (Dave Lambertz) hit the trail at 0700 and made it to the peak by 9:30. Snowed a little on the way up but by the time we made it the view was absolutely perfect 360 degrees. On the summit we met two guys who had been there for a little while; one had summited Everest three times and will be making an I MAX movie about the Eiger in september, and the other had just summited his first Fourteener even though he is on the waiting list for a heart transplant! What a day, my first fourteener as well, and i loved every grueling second of it... Thanks for coming out with me sis
Climbed, Signed, and reclined! (but not for to long as we had to get on ever to Torreys!)
Summitted Gray's around 9:30 in the AM in a cloud. Not much view, but a good sense of accomplishment. A few other hikers were there and it was very friendly.
Hiked with my sister and ran into a great herd of mountain goats including several little ones. Fun!
Went on to Torrey's as well.
Surprised to be the only person on Grays on Memorial Day before 10 A.M. Slogged through the knee-deep snow before reaching a windblown summit ridge. Surrounded by fog on the top for 5 minutes. Actually made Grays a cool excursion!
9/4/16- grays and torreys with alexis. clouds moved in while we were above 13,000' and we received some snow on torreys!
My son and I madethe Grays-Torrey's climb togheter. What a beautiful hike and fun to bag two 14ers in one trip.
Left the campsite at 0330 so that we could reach the summit by sunrise. We were at the summit by 0600 for a beautiful and typical Colorado rising sun. The trail up is very easy to follow with many switchbacks. We were the first people on the summit this morning. Spent about 40 minutes at the top before traversing over to Torrey's Peak.
More pictures from the traverse that I haven't posted on here can be seen here.
6th and favorite CO 14er. Nothing like strong High Pressure to keep the rain and storms away. Summited with clear, beautiful skies at 3:00 pm and enjoyed this last summit before headin back East to VA.
This is a crowded mountain because of its relative ease and it proximity to Denver & Summit County. This was true an the July dat that we hiked Grays & Torreys. With this being said, the throngs of people did not take away from this majestic mountain. These two maountains are two of the best in Colorado and not to be missed.
Lots of mountain goats!
Takes about 2 1/2 to 3 hours to get to the summit and it is a great site from the top.
First Fourteener. Great Climb, great goats.
Great hike, lot of fun and beautiful views!
I have done Grays and Torreys multiple times. Nice climb and nice view.
My first combo. Experienced mountain lighting for the first time. Holding hands and feeling the current through the body was exhilarating unitl my head started popping. Number 2 on my list of 14ers. HIked with Uncle Jack, Shane and Trent, and Gawdun
Did this and Torreys together via the Chihuahua Gulch TH. Didn't see another person until we reached the summit and saddle. Great day - loved the less traveled route.
The descent into the saddle and associated ascent onto Torreys are a schlog. Nice views of the couloirs, however.
My cousin and I had three days to acclimate to altitude (we should have had more time), but we made it. Not bad for a couple flatlanders from Ohio. I really enjoyed it and wish I lived closer.
An Easy hike on a cool september morning. Don't quite remember the date. Then on to Torreys
