Gray's Peak is the 9th highest mountain in Colorado and is the county high point for both Clear Creek County and Summit County. It is also the highpoint of the Front Range, the highest point on the North American divide, and the highest peak visible from the Great Plains.
The easiest route to climb is from the Stephens Gulch Trailhead and is Class 2. The peak is usually climbed the same day as Torrey Peak. Usually Gray's Peak to the east (left) is climbed first and then the climber descends to the saddle between the two mountains and climbs the other side up Torrey. Both can be climbed with little more effort than to just climb one of them. This twin peak combination can be a day trip out of Denver. Most noteworthy is that its an easy walk up. It is a good mountain to get started on the Colorado 14ers. Don't forget your camera... mountain goats are all over this mountain.
