Torreys Peak Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Dead Dog Couloir (see the “Torreys and Grays Peaks” climb) is by far the most popular ski route on Torreys Peak. The north side of Torreys, however, is an underrated diamond in the rough, despite being tougher to get to from a physical and logistical standpoint. There are three primary snow routes dropping off the north aspects of Torreys.
From east to west they are Eroica, the Emperor, and the Tuning Fork. Of these three, the Emperor is the most aesthetic and direct route rising from Grizzly Gulch to the summit. When driving along I-70, be sure to look to the southwest immediately after passing the Bakerville exit sign and you will have an unobstructed view of the Emperor."
