Torreys Peak

  • Torreys Peak
  • 4349 m.
  • 11th in Colorado
  • Primary factor 171 m
  • Saddle: The single saddle towards Greys Peak.
  • Climbed July 1997.


How to get there: Take exit Bakerville from I-70 about one hours drive from Denver. Continue up Steven Gulch on a small dirt road (this road was in poor condition, barely passable for a passenger car when we visited.) Park at the end of the road after crossing some private property.
Route description: We climbed this peak by a traverse of the saddle from Grays peak. This is also a well marked and easy hike. Alternatively, the mountain can be climbed directly via this saddle.
Comments: Torreys Peak looks and is a bit more alpine than Grays. The view is also similar.
