1st Co 14er  Sucess!

My first CO 14er. Got altitude sickness as I came from sea level. Amazingly, my brother who also came from sea level didn't feel the effects of altitude. Great hike to acclimatize to.

Nice standard day  Sucess!

Nice day for a summit with a few new Colorado residents. We took the standard Steven's Gulch approach. The three, having been living here for only 2 weeks were surprisingly relentless in their determination.

Lost Rat on Grays  Sucess!

Did a snow climb up Lost Rat couloir...my first! It was awesome! Conditions were great, weather was beautiful, and my 2 guides were amazing at helping me feel confident.

Windy!!  Sucess!

Base camped the night before on a ridge around 12,000 ft...had to be the windiest spot on the mountain because it was even less windy on the summit! Live and learn...traversed over and got Torrey's as well!

On from Dead Dog  Sucess!

After climbing Torreys via Dead Dog Couloir, I continued on to Grays. Grays was...well, kind of boring...it does have a good view, however. Grays also turned out to be a new elevation record for me.

Fun in the snowy sun  Sucess!

Good times after doing Dead Dog up Torreys with Eric H and Mike B. Had a fun and fast glissade down... 1000ft in 15 minutes maybe?

With Torreys  Sucess!

I forget the exact date. From the summit I nervously watched a mountain goat inspecting my pack, which I had left far below at the saddle.

First CO 14ers  Sucess!

Hiked up Grays and Torreys on four hours' sleep after an eight-hour drive from Salt Lake. J and I met up with a couple friends and we were up and down in a hurry. Beautiful day, easy grades to the summit, great views.

Failed attempt at Grays and Torreys

Unfortunately, my brother and I were plagued with poor weather during the entire week. It seemed as though every time the skis or shoes hit the snow, the wind would come up and it would start snowing. Oh well, the mountain will always be there, and I will return!

Grays and Torreys, 1st 14ers  Sucess!

Marni and I summited Grays at sunrise and ate breakfast up there alone in our sleeping bags. Then we summited Torreys shortly after and headed down before the crowds got heavy. These were our first 14er summits together.

Steven's Gulch  Sucess!

Camped overnight & hit this up the next day-had a rare break in the weather but it was still windy as all hell and cold at the top. But at least I got to see the sun! Some recent slide activity on Kelso and Torreys.

Grays - Torreys  Sucess!

Hiked the North Slopes to Grays and the South Slopes to Torreys from Stevens Gulch Trailhead. The road to the trailhead was washed out from a recent storm and I barely made it through in my Honda Pilot. This was my first 14er combo.

1st 14er, 10/02

This was my first sucessful completed 14er...nice clear day. Yeah it was a little crowded being that it was a Sunday, but this experience started my new found love for hiking and mountaineering.
