Just a placeholder as I'm sure lots of people have done this faster. Route is a lollipop from the parking lot, right up Kelso Ridge to Torreys Summit, over to Grays, and back down the trail. My PR on 7/10/2011.

On 8/30/15, I ran the standard lollipop ascent and descent of Grays and Torreys from Bakerville. I couldn't match Jeff Valliere's very impressive time for the Stevens Gulch TH-to-TH portion, but I was able to get the Grays ascent just a bit under Anton Krupicka's 1:28:27 listed above. Also listing splits for the full Bakerville-Bakerville lollipop since I haven't seen anyone post a time for that route yet.

On 9/6/2015, I headed back to Grays and Torreys to try the standard lollipop from Stevens Gulch instead of from Bakerville. Starting from the parking lot side of the bridge, I hit the Grays summit in 52:39 and did the full lollipop in 1:38:37. I'm confident this route can go quicker; I had to pause several times for hikers and faced a bit of frost on the rocks near the summits.

On 7/10/2016, Galen Burrell did Grays from Bakerville in ~1:26:50, which bested my own 1:27:41 by nearly a minute. So on 7/22/2016 I did a full Bakerville–Bakerville loop to see how fast I could take it. I hit the Grays summit in 1:25:08 and managed the full thing in 2:30:34.
