Climbed and boarded Grays Peak's standard route this morning, in very windy weather! There is some snow on the lower route below the kiosk at 12,000', but the continuous snow started at 12,500' or so, above the Kelso trail turnoff. We were also hoping for Torreys, but decided not to in the end. The top of Grays is getting melted out fast, although there was some disconnected snow off the summit for 20 vertical feet or so. Below that, the snow was in great condition. We followed the snow down near the Grays-Torreys saddle and then dropped down the slope, almost under the saddle - steeper than the rest of Grays' East slope but the snow was excellent!
