This can be a fun few hours in the sun on crampons in the warm months, climbing about 1200 feet, or a snow slog (or ski descent?) in the winter. Maybe it is just a nice hump to get in shape for somewhere else?
Anyhow, climb to the top "standing wave" (serac), and traverse either just left, or perhaps lower, depending on conditions. This puts you directly on the trail to the summit between Gray's and Torrey's.
To descend, pick your own adventure: reverse the route, climb another 350 feet to the summit and go down the Kelso Ridge, descend left/south to the col and take the trail down, or hump up to Gray's Peak (3 feet higher than Torrey's), and walk down.
