Great hike!  Sucess!

Nice easy hike for my 6th official 14er (have also done Mt Cameron between Democrat and Lincoln). I consider this pretty much Class 1 all the way. Not sure where the class 2 hike is. From here, hiked over to Torreys to complete the day. A few clouds, but no precipitation until I hit the car. AWESOME!

Chihuahua Gulch approach  Sucess!

Crowds? Try it on a snowy, sleety, socked in day like I did. Bye-bye crowds.

Kelso Ridge of Torrey's across saddle to Gray's  Sucess!

Used the standard route as our descent after doing the Kelso Ridge on Torrey's. Nice hike for scenery. Very easy.

From Torreys via Grays Peak Trail  Sucess!

Came over via Grays Peak Trail after climbing the Dead Dog Couloir on Torreys. Quite a few more people over on Grays Summit. Looking down on the main trail there were so many people on it they looked like a string of ants. We hiked back down to the saddle between Grays and Torreys and glisaded down maybe 1000 feet til we hit the main trail again. I had fun with our route but I think the main route would be a bit boring and crowded.

Came over from Torreys  Sucess!

Came over from Torreys after doing the Kelso Ridge. Instead of hiking down the trail we went to the top of the snowfield between Grays and Torreys and glissaded our way down.

Standard route  Sucess!

Climbed Grays as well as Torreys (my 3rd and 4th 14ers) via Grays since the conditions were not favorable on Kelso ridge.
About half of the way was snow covered, some clouds built up but they lifted just in time to enjoy great views all around.

Great Starter  Sucess!

Great one to start out on. Uber-busy over the summer. You'll see another climber every 2 minutes if you hike on a weekend in July or August.

Lost Rat  Sucess!

Climbed the Lost Rat couloir on Gray's. A great snow climb! This day it was a little melted out up top, but that provided the opportunity to climb a nice FIRM snow (alpine ice) 30' face to the climbers left to gain the ridge.

Route Climbed: Standard Trail  Sucess!

My 1st 14er! My husband and I hiked this as a training climb for our honeymoon to Peru and the Inca Trail. We gots lots of weird looks from hikers because we took our large packs for practice.
