Description Suggest change

Torrey's Peak (14,267') is a fun mountain close to Denver with two classic alpine cruises and a couple of other ephemeral smears and drips on its east face. If you're fast and blessed with a job close to I-70, Kelso Ridge makes for a good before-work (or class) jaunt in the wee-hours.

Getting There Suggest change

From Denver, drive up I-70 past Georgetown and Silverplume. 3-4 miles past Silverplume take the Bakerville exit, head left across the interstate and straight up the dirt road. Switchback and bounce your way up, bearing left at the fork toward "Gray's Peak" all the way to the Stevens Gulch trailhead. A high clearance vehicle is highly recommended.
