There was a bit of snow on Grays but passble without gear. There was a big dump the next day so it is probably different now. 2:45 up to Grays, 1:00 across saddle to Torreys, 2:00 down.

Route Climbed: traverse from Grays Date Climbed: October 2004  Sucess!

Fog on the ridge between Grays and Torreys made route-finding tougher, but we just stayed on the ridge and were fine. Sliding down the snow on the way down was a rush!

Route Climbed: Kelso Ridge Date Climbed: Dec '03  Sucess!

Good winter climb. No avy hazards except for the approach. Found it easier to descent the ascent route than to go down the regular route due to avy conditions.

A nice, close, easy peak to climb. Not isolated like some, but boasts an impressive view. Saw some mountain goats not but 10 yards off the trail--they didn't seem too worried about us. If only it were hunting season.

Route Climbed: Grays Peak Trail/Traverse from Grays Date Climbed: 09/12/2005  Sucess!

Climbed Grays first and then traversed to Torreys. Very well maintained trail with lots of signs. Many other hikers for a Monday. Must be really busy on a summer weekend.

Route Climbed: Stevens Gulch Date Climbed: September 17, 2005  Sucess!

We started at around 6:30 and summitted around 9:00 AM. Beautiful day, no clouds, but it was rather windy. We just managed to beat the crowds which began pouring up the slopes as we descended. Great climb!

My second 14er, and my first in the quest for them all!

Maybe one or two folks back then, not crowded. A good welcome-to-Colorado hike!

8/25/04- interesting ridge. not as tough as it first appears to be. some route desicions may challenge an inexperienced mountaineer yet it is still a recommendable choice for a first venture into class 3 terrain. the knife edge was a nice rush!

9/4/16- grays and torreys with alexis. clouds moved in while we were above 13,000' and we received some snow on torreys!

Route Climbed: Kelso Ridge - Torreys and Grays Date Climbed: July 24, 2005  Sucess!

The ridge is in perfect condition right now. Took me and Brandon 4 1/2 hours to do the route including running up Grays as well. Super-fun ridge run on 3rd and 4th class rock!
