From Bakerville  Sucess!

Got up early to beat the hordes. Small group on summit. On way down, looked like priests taking a virgin to sacrifice to the mountain. Too many folks for my taste. Oh well, the tunnel was closed the night before because of a car fire. Bakerville makes a good secluded camp.

From Grays  Sucess!

A lot of people, but most stayed on Grays and skipped Torreys. Torreys is definitely the nicer summit.

Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

Very fun. Must have been 500 people (not kidding) on the mountain. Fortunately only a few of them were on Kelso.

fron Gray's Peak

Climbed Grey's and Torrey's with my dad and his friend in 1985. I was about 17, and it was the first time doing 2 14ers in a day.

A wonderful day. I LOVE the CO rockies!

A windy day  Sucess!

Started from the bottom of the road at I-70 at 4am and was back by 10:30am. Visibility was nil for most of the day. I couldn't see the summit until I was standing on it!

Torreys Peak from Loveland Pass  Sucess!

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!

Torreys  Sucess!

There was quite a bit of snow on the summit. There were some people waving a flag on the summit since this was just after 9/11.

Stephens Gulch TH  Sucess!

Combined with Grays Peak. Hiked with HM. Wind was crazy on the saddle...50 mph+...Way too many people, but that's what you get so close to Denver. Nice views from the top.
