Climbed Torreys last Sat with friend. Left camp at 11200‘ at 7am, summited at 2pm (must be lack of snow experience and acclimatization on my part - took longer then expected), back to camp at 5pm (had to downclimb snow above the fork to increase control until light headache was gone). We didn‘t see any snow instability and stayed on the East side (bad idea, didn‘t like scree at the top a bit, should have taken West side).
Trail along Grizzly Gulch Rd was good but we had to use snowshoes on the last mile to the camp.
