HalikuRoute Climbed: South Slopes Date Climbed: 12 Nov 2005


We, rkymtn and I, got an early start on what was a blustery winter condition Colorado day. It was snowing when we exited I-70 which forced us to hike most of the way up the road. Cold, windy and snowy conditions, sometimes at whiteout level, tried our determination. Once on the summit a few quick photos (mostly white) before we headed down. The lower we went the less it was snowing. Once back at I-70 we laughed that there wasn't any snow on the road. All in all a fun day.

Nice little afternoon hike. Going down I decided to go down the steep section of the mountain that you can see from the TH. It was a nice class 3 section and added a little fun to the trip.

Hiked this one with my father. A great tundra hike with a good showing of wildflowers. Looking through binoculars to the southwest from from the top was a bit like watching an ant farm made of talus.

Great hike! Kelso Mountain was the exclamation point on our Mount Edwards, Grays Peak, Torreys Peak, Kelso Mountain eight hour trek. Great views and a relaxing summit.

Quick, easy climb with great views of the surrounding peaks. Fun, wide open ski for the descent.

ColoradoScottRoute Climbed: Northeast Ridge. Date Climbed: May 27, 1987  Sucess!


We started this climb from the short road intersection at 10,780' along the Stevens Gulch Road north of the peak. Hiking this road west for a few hundred yards we reached the lower avalanche slopes of the central couloir on the north face. From here we worked our way south along the rounded northeastern ridge, which forms the left hand side of the couloir. This ridge of mainly talus was followed to the summit. The descent was by a two thousand foot glissade down the central couloir....too much fun!!!

Great quick trip up a mountain with excellent views of the surrounding area. Well worth the effort.

Great views, and nobody else after we left the main trail. Short but steep, great outing.
