Didn't meet any one till the descent...had the whole thing to myself. Played around "off route" a little, but stayed right on the ridge mostly...

Ascened Kelso Ridge to Torreys, took the trail to Grays, and descended via the standard route. One of my favorite 14er routes; done it five times but the views never get old.

Found this route more enjoyable than the standard one. One of my favorite scrambles.!

Very fun climb. Scrambled some exposed sections but not as difficult as I thought it'd be.
The knife edge gives to this route a nice ending. I found myself below Torreys summit as soon as I negociated it.

- 2 hours from TH to summit.
- Hit Grays after Torreys.
- The descend took me longer. Had to yield to the upward crowd.
- Had fun!

The section past the quartzite pillars was snow to the summit, made for a nice finish. The glissade from the saddle saved around 800 vertical of down climbing.

The three of us drove as far as we could up the road, then hiked a couple miles to the trailhead. Made it to the ridge at sunup. It was pretty well blown dry on the windward side and would have made for an easier hike - and did for some sections - but we tried to stay as direct as possible. We protected through some 3/4 class sections that were snowy and icy or just exposed. Put some crampons on for the last snow section to the summit above Dead Dog Couloir's topout. Crossed over the ridge from the summit (a little cornicing) and came down Gray's. Windy. Great view. Super fun.

On memorial weekend this route was awesome! Doing it Solo meant that I had the entire ridge to myself while there was huge congo line up the Grays Peak Trail. (Solo)

Fun mixture of ridge hiking, scrambling, a little Class 4 rock climbing and a fun knife edge. Went solo but joined up with 2 other groups on the traverse to Torreys. Cool to see Dead Dog Couloir without snow.

Climbed Kelso Ridge with some people I met the previous weekend in the San Juans. I haven't had too much class 3 experience, so this was a good start.

Pretty sweet, relaxing climb. It's kind of cool to get on the summit and see all the people struggling up the dog route. There will likely be only a few parties on this route making it enjoyable to get away from the masses.

A very interesting scramble. It is neat to watch all the folks down on the regular trail.
