Torrey (Kelso) + Gray  Sucess!

After having climbed Mt. Sneffels and Crag Crest the days before, the views around Torrey's and Gray's were less impressive, but still a pretty fun climb up Kelso ridge and down via Gray's.

Torreys cleared up  Sucess!

After Grays in the fog and snow, the clouds parted for this summit.

Grays/Torreys combo  Sucess!

Did this one along with Grays. Followed the standard route up the Grays Peak Trail to Grays, then over to Torreys and back down. Great day!

Grays/Torreys Combo   Sucess!

Though it looks like a harder peak from the trail, i would definitely say Grays was the tougher of the 2.

Torreys Peak  Sucess!

Got the summit on my 2nd try. Hiked from I-70 since I did not have a high clearance vehicle. Great views.

Kelso ridge  Sucess!

Weather wasn't looking promising, but we got lucky. Despite a bad forecast, there were 50 people on the summit on this particular Sunday. All college-aged; I suppose more experienced hikers stayed home after checking the weather.

Kelso Ridge was a great class 3.

Stevens Gulch Trio  Sucess!

Edwards, Grays and Torreys together from Stevens Gulch trailhead solo. Road open and clear (might change with snow in the forecast!). Lower trail dry, but snow packed up higher, traction can come in handy.

Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

Went up Kelso and down the normal route. Saw a family of goats at around 13,000 ft. Nice day with summer conditions.

From Grays.  Sucess!

After descending Grays...hiked up Torreys, grabbed the summit, and headed back. Easy round trip. Almost 5 hours exactly for both. 2h to Grays, 1h 30m back from Torreys. Toss a few more 14ers on the pile.

Awesome climb  Sucess!

My 10th and 11th Fourteeners and Kieva's 4th Fourteener! Kieva and I hit the approach trail at 4:00 am and made it back to the trailhead at 11:15 am. We climbed Torreys Peak via the Kelso Ridge, a class 3 rock climb with a ton of exposure. We climbed some class 4 rock as well and had to cross a "Knife Edge" towards the end of the ridge, a section that you must carefully navigate because it was only inches wide. We summited Torreys Peak and then took an easy trail up neighboring 14er Grays Peak. An awesome climb.
