Great addition to Grays Peak!  Sucess!

Did the easy hike up Grays, then rode the saddle over to Torreys, making my 7th official 14er (also did Mt Cameron between Democrat and Lincoln but it's like 20 ft short of being "official"). Anyway, it was a great little hike from the saddle! Of course it was almost standing room only at the top, but my day was made by 2 guys who summitted without shirts or packs and very little supplies. Reminded me of Bill and Ted from "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure." Also, it was strange that I got 4 bars for cell service but couldn't complete a call. Oh well, except that I forgot to tell the wife which peaks I was climbing today. OOOPS! Anyway, I hiked back down to a little bit of cloud cover but no precipitation until I hit the car. AWESOME DAY!

Chihuahua Gulch approach  Sucess!

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

Dead Dog Couloir  Sucess!

Fun snow climb. Get an early start. Since its East facing snow was starting to get kind of soft at 9 in the morning. Beautiful weather on top. Ascended the Grays peak trail to hit Grays on the way down.

Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

We came up the Kelso ridge and summitted just before the mass of hikers made it over from Grays. Wonderful day and a really fun route.

Torreys via Grays  Sucess!

I summited Torreys after tagging Grays on a nice spring morning, Kelso ridge was not in shape yet to give it a try. Had great views of Evans-Bierstadt, Mosquito range and Holy Cross.

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.
