This peak is #11 on the Height List for Colorado .Torreys Peak is located west of Denver, and just north of slightly higher Grays Peak. The summit can easily be reached by hiking the trail that goes up Grays Peak, and then scrambling north along the ridge that connects the two peaks. The more interesting route follows the 3rd class Kelso Ridge which is shown in the photo as the right-hand skyline ridge which turns towards the camera near the bottom. This ridge presents some interesting routefinding and scrambling problems, especially the "knife-edge" section near the summit.
