Figured I'd add the report for Torreys as well as Grays. The ascent up Torreys was extremely easy going, and summer conditions without any snow. The descent down Grays to the saddle, however, was much worse and I would recommend spikes. I would say if you're debating bringing spikes, definitely do it. It'll make your hike much easier from the saddle all the way down to the split to Kelso Ridge.

Thanks for the update, I was curious how bad it was! What was the 4wd road up to the trailhead like? Doable? I know that area tends to be a snowtrap, so I'm curious if your vehicle made it the entire way up, or if you had to bail and go on foot up the road? I'm planning a trip in a couple weeks, so I'm hoping the snow is melted by then, at least on the road, but I'm prepared for anything!

The road this morning wasn't an issue at all! I was able to drive up the road no problem. The first 2 miles of the trail is also completely dry, most of the snow is just up higher and in shade prone areas. Road should be good for a while unless we get a bunch of new snow (my opinion)
