Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

I climbed Torreys with some people I met the previous weekend down in the San Juans. We started at 5AM. It was pretty windy most of the time. We encountered two other hikers on the ridge. There were a handful of people on Torreys. We rested there a few minutes before heading over to Grays.

Via Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed Torreys via Kelso Ridge. After summiting Torreys, traversed to Grays Peak and then to Mount Edwards. Fun scramble, great views!

via Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

I'm not into scree slogs, so I don't think I would have done this peak without Kelso's Ridge or Dead Dog.

Cool Peak  Sucess!

Slept at the TH, started around 7:45 and did Greys and Torreys. On the way down, we did an amazing glissade. These were 14ers number 14 and 15 for me. These were also are 8th and 9th 13k+ peak in 3 days. Cool views and an amazing area. Definitely worth the visit.

Grays and Torreys  Sucess!

Winter ascent of the pair, started at the bottom of the road, but surprisingly it was still drivable for about 2 1/2 miles. The trail is well packed down and snow shoes are not necessary. Yak-trax or mini-spikes may be helpful in a few hardpacked spots, but I didn't use them. Upper part of Grays is pretty dry, skis would be basically worthless.

Torreys/Grays-Wrong Mountain First  Sucess!

We did not expect to go after a two bagger this year, but as you climbers know this is a moderate climb if careful. We left from Stevens Gutlch. Had to bail fom the sedan rental on the approach when rocks/trail got too rough. But got to the trail-head and started the climb but churning elevation too fast. Daniel, my dear friend paid for it with altitiude sickness but made both. We actually lost the trail on the way up Grays and traversed the cleaveage South to North up to the summit of Torreys. I remember telling my friend Den to quit fricking bumping into me on the traverse as I did not want to fall into the bowl. And actually as my altimeter read above 14,000 feet, as were are on the grind up the South Face, my team did not think I/my altimeter was this full of shit. We all made the summit at 1030 hrs. 14,267 feet and could not eat. Almost threw up.......... But had to go on as we had one more to go.

PS I hope no other human being ever rents that rental sedan we took up to the trailhead
