First and Second official 14ers. Couldn't have been a more beautiful day. Up close pictures of Mountain Goats. Beautiful wild flowers. Lots of people on the trail. Who can blame them? :o)
Climbed Kelso Mtn., followed Kelso Ridge to Torreys, traversed to Grays, Glissaded down. #28
My first 14'r soloed up - did not know if I should laugh or cry on the summit
great climb up via right branch of Lost Rat (not included in description on this website) - rest was slogging up the hill - sawtwo mountain goats
Haliku and I headed over after tagging Torreys via the Dead Dog Couloir. It was a great day and the climbing conditions were good – a little windy, but no legitimate complaints.
7/20/08 - Climbed Grays and Torreys with my wife for our, belated, anniversary 14er tradition.
Came across the col from Torreys
Via Lost Rat Couloir. Very amazing place, cant wait to go back.
Beautiful day with crystal clear skies and a fun encounter with mountain goats.
Did a Grays-Torreys Combo. Nice weather, tons of people!
Kelso Ridge up Torreys to Greys makes a nice trip. Lots of mountain goats.
Nice hike to introduce myself to 14ers. Disappointed I didn't get to see the mountain goats, but I did have the summit to myself for two minutes or so. Cold and windy, so I stayed long enough to eat a bit and headed for Torreys.
Had perfect weather and climbed Torrey's shortly after. We were greeted at the top by very curious mountain goats!
We picked up a friend from the Denver airport and headed straight to this mtn. The hike was enjoyable and we did run into some of the famous mountain goats. The glissade down was certainly the highlight!
Good way to combine two 14ers. Much more interesting than Lincoln Bross and Democrat
Grays and Torreys via the standard Grays trail. Overcast day and started to rain a bit. Trail very crowded.
in succession with torreys via kelso loved it
Did Grays after the Torreys summit via the Kelso trail. These were my first solo 14er hikes and the Kelso trail made it all worth it...really enjoyed this route up. Was second to summit Torreys that day, saw a lone mountain goat...got out before the rain came.
In conjunction with Torreys.
because this was my third climb of Grays. Did it back in Sept. of 1992, my 8th 14er) then again in Sept. of 1997 (when I included Torreys). This time, it was to write off unfinished business for my wife, who had tried it in '92, but turned back without summitting. This time, she bagged both peaks. A gorgeous day.
Summmitted from the Grays-Torreys saddle, after Torreys. Saw some tame mountain goats on the descent.
