Torreys Peak is eleventh highest of the Colorado 14ers. It is somewhat lower than its "twin," Grays Peak. Due to their proximity to Denver and the easy nature of the climbs, Grays and Torreys are often climbed in the same day. For many, it is a first climb and the beginning of a quest to climb all of Colorado's peaks over 14,000 feet.
Charles C. Parry, botanist, named the peaks after his distinguished colleagues, Asa Gray and John Torrey.
