Description

Kevin and I did a quick scramble up Kelso Ridge on Torreys Peak and then traversed over to Grays Peak before cruising back down the standard route to the trailhead.  We made fair time reaching Torreys Peak after 2 hours and 4 minutes of hiking.  We slowed down a bit after this, but still completed the car-to-car hike in 4 hours and 15 minutes.  We met up with Jeff Kunkle after the hike for a sandwich and beer.
