Rainy Day  Sucess!

Summitted with some dark clouds fast approaching, started down, got hit with lots of rain and hail, but no lightning or thunder. I got to use my rain gear for only the second time on a fourteener, all in all a very nice day.

Stevens Gulch TH Ascend Grays N Slopes, S Slope to Torreys  Sucess!

Third time's the charm. Sleet and bad weather turned us back on two previous attempts. This time we were rewarded with perfect weather and lots of friendly nanny and baby goats on the trail.

Beautiful Day

Was a great day with no threat of weather. Climbed with the masses, but a good time none the less

Kelso Ridge to Torreys and Grays  Sucess!

Very beautiful day for a climb, got away from the crowd on the Kelso ridge and had a very interesting climb to the summit.

Second Fourteener  Sucess!

Second to Torreys, of course. Didn't know if I could handle both on the same day since these were my first, but I think if you're in sound shape and have the proper motivation, it's definitely doable.

Grays and Torreys  Sucess!

Great day of hiking, going up the Kelso Ridge is highly recommended for those who don't mind class 3 climbing.

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.

3rd 14er  Sucess!

Traversed from Grays my first time up. Second ascent by Kelso Ridge was far more enjoyable.

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.
