South Slopes: traverse from Grays Peak

Class 1

Highlights

  • Torreys Peak is a Colorado 14er in the Front Range along the Continental Divide.
  • Nearly always mentioned in conjunction with nearby 14er Grays Peak.
  • Once at the summit, many opt to continue on to the summit of Grays Peak, 0.75 miles away.
  • Since these peaks are close to Denver, you probably won't be alone out there.
"Double date hike with Josh & Jen Fyhrie. Started at 6:43, summited Torreys Peak at 9:35, and got back to our car pretty much exactly 6 hours later! Mike & Turok summited Torreys, Jen, Josh and I summited both Torreys and Grays. " - aenea9881, Jul 4, 2018
"Torreys might have actually been higher than Greys today. A decent drift of snow at the summit makes it a bit taller. Was able to glissade almost 1000 ft down from the saddle. It was fun." - wazoheat, Jun 20, 2017
" I climbed Torreys Peak and Grays Peak via Kelso Ridge. My third summit of Torreys, and second summit of Grays. We met up with a larger group to camp the night before in honor of Selena LeDoux's birthday. Most of the group chose to go up the standard route. My friends Hunter Nerison, Joshua Meyer, and myself decided on Kelso Ridge. There was snow the last hundred feet or so, perhaps a bit more, but the route was mostly clear. It was a beautiful day and good times were had by all!" - IanWright, Jun 18, 2016
"Did this climb from the West Ridge at Loveland Pass. On the way to Torreys on this route you have to climb Cupid, Grizzly Peak, and a few other unnamed points. Then on the way back you have to climb them all over again from the other direction. This made for a very long and difficult day. Especially in winter! In addition, you are above 13,000 ft on the ridge for a majority of the hike. This is a lung buster for sure! Took us between 12 and 13 hours round trip, but we took our time and hung out on a few of the summits. A nice clear day with almost no wind till the very end. " - IanWright, Mar 11, 2016
"Beautiful views from the summit. Luckily we got the summit to ourselves for a several minutes. Ran into several mountain goats on the ridge and got a few good photos. May have to add them once I get them uploaded. Photo from Torreys looking southeast with Grays and Evans & Bierstadt in the distance." - tylerburg, Aug 28, 2015
