Torreys Peak Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This ridge can be climbed at any time of the year, and is often used as training for those preparing for an expedition. Since the road up Stevens Gulch is closed by snow typically from November through at least May, winter ascents are significantly longer and more committing.

While this route can be done in one day from I-70, many parties prefer to pack in some distance. Camping just below the saddle at the 12,300ft. level can provide the aspiring alpinist with quite extreme conditions. More than one group has been happy to head down at first light after a miserable night spent here, abandoning any thoughts of doing the climb! Remember that in winter conditions this route is a much more serious undertaking than in summer season conditions."
