FYI make sure your 'vehicle' has adequate clearance going up to Gray/Torrey TH (I refer to the drive 2 miles up from the highway 70 exit) - descriptions have said a wild variety of things, dont attempt it in anything other than AWD/4WD IMHO. Otherwise stay in the lot below, drive/hike up in AM and then start the hike in.
