“The full approach, from I-70 to the summit of Torreys Peak.”— Jacob Winey
From here, it's often best skinning to follow the creek, under the bridge. If it's later in the spring, that will be melted out, and you'll need to follow the summer trail. Either way, head up Stevens Gulch and gain views of Grays and Torreys as you come around Kelso Mountain. Once Torreys in in full view, make sure that you move right, to the gap between some moraine features and the ridge between Kelso Mountain and Torreys. You should have a wonderful view of Dead Dog Couloir at this point. Take a left and start gaining altitude on the west side of the moraine features. Follow these up into the Grays Peak Bowl. Traverse this bowl while gaining elevation to make the saddle between Grays and Torreys (preferably, avoid the cornice that often develops on this saddle). Once there, head north to the summit of Torreys peak (it's closer than it looks).
