Route Climbed: Stevens Gulch TH (G-T saddle)  Sucess!

Climbing this late in the season was a tad tricky. There were lots of ice on the trail from the timberline on up. I slipped a few times and one of my friends, Daisuke, did it with his basketball shoes. LoL! We were young and daring, but we summitted both peaks! I'm recording this as the first time I took Torreys & Grays. There were other ascent up these peaks afterward but they're too many to mention.

Wasn't sure if I had time to do Torreys from Grays but went for it and succeeded!

A Peak for All Seasons!  Sucess!

Just signing the log. I've climbed Torreys several times and have been up there in all seasons. Some of the biggest avalanches I've ever seen (disregarding Nepal and the Cascades) were on the east face of Torreys during a three day heavy snowfall. A beautiful, fun peak in any season.

Via Kelso ridge - Grays loop  Sucess!

Great climb/hike, very happy to have made the full trip in 4:20 solo, with my first Class 3 pitches at such altitude (live in upstate NY). Decent exposure and a very fun route!

over from Grays Peak  Sucess!

I was succesful and proud of it! When crossing the snowfield at the saddle between the peaks don't turn down too soon on the return back down to Stevens Gulch Trailhead, terrain is rougher there. My first twofer.

Loveland Pass  Sucess!

Wow, 10 miles above 12000ft, that makes for quite a day. Took about 8 hours and none of it is flat. All up and down all the way.
Jogged out the final mile and a half because I was getting rained on. Jogging at 12000ft is not fun, but neither is getting lightening'ed. This was a great route.

A Brand New Bag  Sucess!

Went across the saddle from Grays on a beautiful day. More than a few people, but I didn't mind, I hiked my first 14ers! If you want a fairly tame hike that will leave you wanting more, Grays\Torreys will do the trick.

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
