Torreys Peak Trip Report (#8889)

Peter, Linda and Ben (12) Alexander climbed Grays & Torreys via the standard trail. We had considered using the Lost Rat Couloir on Gray's but there was not enough snow left in 2002. This is a beautiful hike -- one of the best 14er trails we have done. Don't give up on the face below Grays' summit! It seems like the trail will never end, but it really does. The hike from the summit of Grays to Torrey's is not as far as it looks -- we made it less than an hour and we're not fast. Clouds drove os down after about 20 minutes on the summit of Torrey's; we finished in light rain that was snow on the two summits. By the standard route, these are among the easier 14ers, with great views at the top.
