Ran from Loveland to Torrey's & back and added on Sniktau as a bonus peak. Finished up at the TH watching the eclipse with some new friends I met on UN 12,915! Great day in the mountains.
Turned into a minor epic, water froze, sunburnt under the chin and nose, and suffered frostbite on my cheeks. Made it to Torreys but Grays was not in the cards that day.
Did this in the winter. Nice warm up... turned around at Grizzly though...
Common wisdom says get off the peak before noon. I decided to begin at the Loveland Pass lot well after the threat of storms passed. Starting at 6 pm I made it back to the truck just before 3 am. Never needed the headlamp. Summer solstice sunset rather late and a full moon had already risen. Natural light the whole way. Do your research and try night hiking!
I started at Loveland Pass, hiked over the various subpeaks to get to Grizzly and continued on to Torreys. The weather was threatening so instead of returning the same way I downclimbed Torreys standard route to Stevens Gulch trailhead. There I was fortunate enough to get a ride back to Loveland Pass.
