My first Colorado 14er. Beautiful weather.
30 minutes to traverse from Torrys.
First Colorado 14er for my wife and I; we hiked up the easy Grays Peak Trail and managed to get off before a major hail storm. The road going up to the trailhead was virtually unpassable in our Ford Focus, but after filling in the first ditch a bit, we were able to pass; we wouldn't recommend this however.
a great combo day hike w/ torreys. couldnt ask for a better day, not a cloud in the sky.
Up the Dead Dog, over to Grays, and back down on a long glissade with Tim and Eric.
Very nice climb and great views, whenever the clouds moved away that is...
my first taste of high altitude hiking, Ive been addicted ever since!
Jennifer's and mine first successful 14er summit!
In September of 2007, I made it up my first 14er. Gray's wasn't that hard to hike. It had some great views. It had a lot of people hiking it. I loved your picture.
This completed my sixth fourteener summit this week. On to Torreys!
This was not only my 1st 14er but also the 1st hike I ever went on. I did this 3 years ago. I'm an addict now.
I am also a counselor on my down time from climbing. I took the clients up grays and torreys and they kicked butt.
Nasty, nasty weather on the 7th caused me to bail before bagging Torreys, but I did reach the summit of Grays for my first 14er!
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.
Climbed after ascending Torreys.
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.
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.
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!
Tim P, Mike B and I climbed the Dead Dog on Torreys and traversed over to Grays.
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.
