 Combination Route  

Lovely day- the mountains were packed but people are always friendly.
Got to the trailhead and started at 8:05am. Hiked up Grays front side first, a little snow, but very easily traversed. Cloudy at the summit around 10:00am. Descended into the saddle onward to Torreys, the sun came out and it was perfect. Not too windy and mild clouds at the summit around 11am. Descended Torreys and took the snow covered trail: I brought my Yak-Trax and ran across.
Finished at 1pm and left with a sunburn

If these are your first 14ers (they're great to do for your first one) but if you can bring Yak-Trax, it would be helpful for you!
