Route Climbed: Grays Trail  Sucess!

This was my first 14er. I don't know the actual date because I wasn't keeping a journal at the point and didn't intend to turn into a peak bagger. I know it was a holiday weekend and the weather was beautiful so I picked July 4th weekend. We went up Grays and traversed over to Torreys. Sunny and clear all day...one of those days that hooks you into wanting to climb more peaks.

Cimbed this with my buddy Johnny in the Summer of 2005. Good climb, cold at the top. Some snow on the way down made for a good glisade!

Route Climbed: Grays Trail Date Climbed: August 1994  Sucess!

The morning started out pretty interesting. I and Randy arrived at the TH around 4:00am and didn't realize until we started to leave the car neither one of us brought a flashlight.

We made it up however. Weather turned frighfully cold that afternoon. Saw some sheep and summited Torries also.

This was my 2nd 14er. A nice hike up to Grays then over to Torreys. Pictures sucked due to haziness caused by the wildfires that summer.

Route Climbed: North Slopes Date Climbed: August 10th, 2003  Sucess!

After spending a beautiful morning on Torreys, this summit felt a little crowded as I clinched a rock and claimed it, cause it seemed that there was not enough space for all of us. Ton of people, and a bunch of bozos with a satellite radio trying to setup a transmitter provided minutes of entertainment. I quickly departed for my next summit....
