I still haven't figured out how to get past the first creek crossing without getting my feet wet. Regardless, great day on a great route!
Good trip for a first 14er
Did Torreys also. Got to see the goats.
Great weather, hordes of people, did w/Torreys
The clutch on my 1993 Tempo was protesting "never again" after the drive up the Stevens Gulch road. Warmed up on Kelso the day before then did Grays and Torreys by the standard route.Mountain goat on Torreys.
A beautiful day and a fun hike. We saw the mountain goats and several falcons or hawks (not sure). An EXTREMELY busy trail but I expected that. Gorgeous wildflowers! Went on to Torreys afterwards.
I've climbed this one 5 times so far, on different occasions of course.
Summitted via the Lost Rat - right hand variation. To my surprise the snow was in great shape for so late in the season. It was starting to melt out towards the top though. Great snow climb.
Took the standard trail up on a fantastic day. More than a few people on the trail, but I didn't mind, I hiked my 1st 14er!
Hiked the standard route.
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.
