Ascent Trip Report

- Ascent via standard Northeast Slopes from I70 Bakerville Steven's Gulch Winter Parking Lot
- Descent via north ridge to Torreys Peak
- Torreys Ascent via South slopes
- Torreys Descent via Emperor Couloir (west face) and curled back onto Stevens Gulch Road to Parking Lot
- Dead dog couloir had been baking much too long. Need to drop around 9:30am on a day like today (35 high and sun at 14k and 83 in Denver). Snow on Emperor was perfect. Legs were done by the time I started skiing.
