Standard Route  Sucess!

Did the Grays/Torreys combination. Nice day, still snowy packed over most of the area. Lots of post-holing that day, and lots of skiers and snowboarders.

Kelso Ridge / Torreys to Grays  Sucess!

A fine day of climbing solo. Snow made the final 200 ft or so kinda of difficult in approach shoes.

Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

We took the Kelso Ridge challenged and loved it! At the crux of the ridge we went right and down to avoid the bum slide. It was class 3 and just fine.

#12  Sucess!

We climbed the south ridge after climbing Grays. An easy hike from the saddle up to the summit. Hope to try the ridge someday.

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.

Torreys  Sucess!

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.
