Nice to break away from the hordes on Grays and Torreys. Except for the two mountain goats, we had the peak to ourselves.

Climbed from Torreys-Kelso saddle and continued to climb the connecting ridge to Torreys and then Grays. Kelso is a fun mountain that provides some solitude in a generally crowded area.

Took my sister and a co-worker up this. My sister who isn't an 'outdoor enthusiast' was laughingly scared. Took the east ridge down.
Good views.

Hiked with Craig from Stephens Gulch TH. Steep depending on the route, cold and windy but a beautiful day.

The wife and I went up Kelso Ridge to Torreys, then on to Grays, and finished up with an ascent of Kelso. Goodness it was nice to have the seclusion of Kelso's summit.

Went up Kelso Ridge for Natalie's celebration. Then Valerie and I followed the standard route back to the start of Kelso Ridge, turned 180 degrees and climbed the ridge to Kelso Mtn. First ~300 feet are fun, easy scrambling, then it becomes mainly tundra.

Stuck fairly true to the ridge for good scrambling - who the heck wants to opt for side-stepping in scree? :-). Weather held nicely. Only one other party on the mountain.

Supposedly this was a coveted "winter" ascent. Less snow now than there was in November! Weather moved in at the trailhead. Climbed, summited, and descended in a white out.

Great winter climb, Torreys Peak looks great in winter from this viewpoint! Although a warm and sunny day, the winds were just ripping and blowing snow all around.

Made a big loop on a bluebird day by going up the south ridge of Kelso, across Kelso Ridge to Torreys, over to Grays, down the south ridge of Grays to Ruby. Long day but avoided the huge masses of people on the trail. Some fun scrambling on the lower portion of the south ridge of Kelso. Don't skirt the buttress on the Grizzly Gulch side. Too loose!

5/14/09 - Parked around 10,700 ft on the Stevens Gulch Road and utilized the avy chute on the north side of the mountain. Very efficient route in the spring - 2400 ft in 1 mile!

3/14/12 - Loop over Ganley, McClellan, Edwards & Kelso from Bakerville.

Lacking guidebooks, or anything else, thought we were on Grays/Torreys. Oops! Returned the following weekend to climb the "right peaks!" Anyway - we got a summit!
