Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed some unnamed couloir on Kelso Mountain from Grizzly Gulch to the summit of Kelso. We then followed Kelso Ridge all the way from Kelso Mtn. to the summit of Torreys. Beautiful Day! #27

Grays/Torreys Combo  Sucess!

1st & 2nd official 14ers. Gorgeos day. Close encounters with the Mountain Goats! Lots of people, but can't blame them. :o)

Dead Dog Couloir  Sucess!

This was a nice couloir with a great finish, but it was crowded (14 people climbed it this day) and there were definitely a few cases of rock-fall. I took my brother-in-law, and this was his first crampon/ice axe experience.

Dead Dog  Sucess!

A great day. Haliku and I ascended Dead Dog Couloir to the summit and then headed on to Grays. It was good to summit after a previous attempt on this route and an arduous attempt on Mt. Brooks in the Alaska Range about two weeks ago. I needed to get up something!
7/20/08 - Climbed Grays and Torreys with my wife for our, belated, anniversary 14er tradition.

Dead Dog  Sucess!

Climbed up the couloir and then tagged Grays. Got to the couloir as the sun was coming up, the snow got soft quick. Melting was causing rocks to come flying down, bring a helmet.

Dead Dog  Sucess!

Flew in from Chicago Friday night and slept at the TH. Parked just past the old saw mill on Saturday morning, snowshoed in and camped below the mine shack. Climbed Kelso Mountain in the afternoon as a warm-up for Torreys Peak. Woke up early Sunday and climbed the Dead Dog Couloir on Torreys with Mike. Conditions were perfect. We had a mostly cloudless sky and excellent snow in the couloir. The snow on the final summit ridge was a bit powdery but no real problem. We intended to climb Grays Peak too, but heavy clouds started to roll in and we opted to head back. Descended via the south saddle and Grays Peak trail, broke camp and hiked out.

Emperor/NW Face  Sucess!

Ascended the Emperor with Andy, Brenta, Mt man dan, and zenalpinist. Snow was in decent shape for the climb up, weather held up nicely. Skied down the NW face on windslab and hard pack until 12K, got 1K of good spring corn in. Many wet slides visible in the surrounding areas.

Right after Grays  Sucess!

Made our way down an easy saddle between Grays and Torreys, and then hiked the rest of the way up to the summit of Torreys. Nice double bagger day with beautiful weather.

My second 14er  Sucess!

Like so many others, I hiked Torreys in succession with Grays, but the summits could not have been different. On Grays, it was me and one other person sheltering ourselves from the wind and cold. A short time later, on Torreys, there was a crowd basking in the warm sun of a June day. You gotta love this state.

From Grays  Sucess!

We climbed Torrey's after climbing down to the saddle with Grays.

Couldn't pass it up  Sucess!

My friends headed back to the car after Grays, but I couldn't pass up the chance for another 14er.
