Skiing Dead Dog  Sucess!

Climbed Dead Dog with a whole crew from SP. Snow was good in the morning, corned up nicely by 9am for a sweet ski descent of the couloir. Great meeting everyone and a stellar group. The road into Stevens Gulch is fairly washed out as of 6-7-08, and I wouldn't recommend it for a low clearance vehicle(8"+ is fine).

Ski Descent of NW Couloir

Perfect weather, perfect partner and alot of work. I couldn't make it all the way, but what should I expect when fighting a cold, out of shape and an 8 month old that's still not sleeping through the night! I estimate we stopped at 13,500. This was a day of firsts: first time skiing a 14er, skiing in June, using crampons and climbing a couloir with skis on my pack. Had a blast despite my conditions. I will be back!

finishing the winter pair  Sucess!

scooted up this bugger after grays. didn't have any energy but knew this would be my best opportunity to summit torreys this winter. found a safe glissade path off grays during the descent to save some ware 'n tare on the ol' knees!

Nice hike  Sucess!

Hiked up Grays and Torreys on four hours' sleep after an eight-hour drive from Salt Lake. J and I met up with a couple friends and we were up and down in a hurry. Beautiful day, easy grades to the summit, great views.

Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

New friend, Jeff and myself sumitted Torrey's Peak via Kelso Ridge yesterday. In the winter time, this ridge is NOT to be underestimated. The ridge itself took us almost exactly 5 hours to complete. Had some good weather and scary wind bursts but it was a very long, very satisfying day. Sunset from the summit was absolutely amazing! The 1st crux was pretty hairy as we climbed a lower 5th class chimeny on the south side. Challenging & rewarding day.

Grays - Torreys  Sucess!

Hiked the North Slopes to Grays and the South Slopes to Torreys from Stevens Gulch Trailhead. Clouds hovered around the summit and I considered going back to the trailhead instead of heading up to the top. Decided to go for it and the weather improved.

First of many  Sucess!

This was the first of many climbs of Torreys. Most climbs were from the Stevens Gulch trailhead on the normal route combined with Grays. I have done variations of Kelso Ridge 3 times. One of those times was from the Grizzly Gulch side meeting it above the Kelso saddle. I have also hiked over from Loveland Pass to Torreys and then down to Stevens Gulch trailhead.

1st Fourteener  Sucess!

Torreys was my first 14-er. At the time, I was such a flatlander that it really felt like a slog. It's amazing how perspective changes with experience.

Grays and Torreys from Stephens Gulch  Sucess!

I had just moved to Colorado, and Grays and Torreys would be my first 14ers since moving here. The day started kind of gray, but didn't look threating. Easily bagged Grays and then headed over to Torreys. And while resting upon the summit it started to spit little balls of sheet. So at that point I started down, and when I got to the saddle between Grays and Torreys it was nearly whiteout conditions. Further down the snow turned to a cold rain. Fortunately I was dressed for the occasion, however many other folks were hiking in cotton sweatshirts, jeans, sneakers and no rain gear. At this point I'm thinking I am going to read about a lot of people who die due to the elements on these mountains.
