Ascent Trip Report

Summited Torreys after descending Grays north face. Again, another easy hike to the summit. Several other hikers had climbed the Kelso Ridge route with watermelon, beer, a radio, and a BBQ and burgers; and turned the summit of Torreys into a 4th of July party. I was surprised at the amount of snow still left on Torreys. We had one fairly long snow crossing after descending to the saddle between Greys and Torreys. Nothing technical.
