The saddle seemed easy after climbing up Kelso to Torreys. (Solo)
Easy climb with Torreys
Easy walk up. I couldn't believe it I just did a 14er.
Not too busy as far as Grays goes. Perfect weather. Moved quick. Hit Grays, Torreys, back to Grays and down to the TH.
Great day, if a bit boring climb to Grays.
Great to get up early after camping in Bakerville and beat the hordes. On the way down, climbed down class 3 to get to what was left of a glissadeable snowfield, rapped my axe on a diving board-like boulder, gave a radness call out, and hit it with an exaggerated bicycle-style leap onto the snow. Good for some g.n.a.r. points. Maybe 1,000 feet. Good soft snow, even at 10 a.m.
There were about 200 people and 50 dogs on the trail. Done with Torreys. Great trail. Great weather.
I had to park about a mile below the TH. Wow. It was busy like Best Buy on black Friday! 2:27 to the summit, 1:32 back to the car. Fun, easy 14er.
Nice day, lots of people
9th 14er of this years trip.
Good first 14er
Nice quick hike, crowds, and 5 dogs on the summit at once :)
Grays and Torreys.
Climbed with C. Stephens
We headed into the basin between Grays and Torreys with hopes to climb Dead Dog Couloir, but the snow had softened up too quickly so we skinned up Grays. Fun turns on the way down!
Great day mine and my daughters first 14er.
From I70 TH up Steven's Gultch. Decent day for a winter 14er but got winded out at 13k just prior to the switch backs. Lot's of snow. Snow shoes on the whole trip.
another with susan!
Somewhere around 7k feet of gain for the day. No big deal right? Route was great. Was harassed by marauding thunderstorms on the way back over Grizzly Peak. Finally found a break in the storm and made it over and back down. Was a crazy day for sure!
