Ascent Trip Report

After climbing Grays Peak I descended to the saddle between Grays and Torreys, climbed Torreys from the south, returned to the saddle, then descended to the Grays Peak Trail to return to the car. In other words, I did the standard combo route for the two peaks from the Stevens Gulch Trailhead. I had a headache in the evening, probably from not being adequately acclimated.
