My second 14er--about 45 minutes after my 1st 14er!
Climbed the Dead Dog Col. with Tim and Eric, then hit Grays.
a short trip over from grays, well worth it. great to be able to hit two 14ers in the same day.
Very fun but wish I could of done the Kelso Ridge instead of just the regular route. Looking forward to coming here in the winter or spring to try other routes on it and to also bag Gray's Peak.
Though shorter by a tad than its neighbor, I think Torreys is far more exciting and the views are better. And, maybe, just maybe, a little less traffic. I was up by 8AM after having summited Grays, didn't linger long as the cloud deck was closing in rapidly (and yet the masses continued upwards).
Kelso ridge was very fun!!!
I decided to give my legs a rest after this one. This was my 7th 14er summit this week. Heading home now.
This was the first time I ascended this mountain NOT via the kelso ridge. It was good for training, not too terribly exciting, but beautiful. great day, got the clients from my tx facility to come out and enjoy it.
This was my first 14er ever and the first of three this day. I headed over to Grays and then drove over and did Bierstadt.
Great day with other SP members.
great climb, great day
Came over after summiting Grays. Best part of the whole day was glissading down from the saddle!
Great conditions with lot of people, continued to Grays.
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).
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!
Perfect conditions! High on the fun meter. Lots of SP'ers out for a great time.
Good day, climbed with a bunch of other SPers.
Dead Dog couloir with Eric and Mike B. Lots of people on this Sat., counted 13 in the couloir at one point, 6 skiers came down. Fun climb and continued to Gray's.
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!
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.
