Torreys Peak
Elevation: 14,267 feet
Mileage: 7.0 miles
Vertical Gain: 3,040 feet
Route: Dead Dog Couloir

May 27th, 2005

The Dead Dog Couloir. The name instills fear and excitement for those who aspire to climb it. It is a 1,200 foot couloir, averaging somewhere around 40 to 45 degrees, that splits the east face of the 14,000 foot Torreys Peak. We climbed the Lost Rat Couloir on Grays Peak last year as Amyís first snow climb and we had been eyeing the Dead Dog for the last few weeks. With a cold front moving into Colorado, bringing a good freeze overnight to the high country snowpack, I felt the conditions were finally prime for an ascent of the Dead Dog.
