Did with a group of grad school friends back in 2005. Summited Grays after going over the knife edge to reach Torreys. Roped up for one of the class 4 sections. Fantastic weather!

Very nice ridge. Knife edge was great, but not as exposed as reported.

This was a fun little half day outing from Stevens Gulch, a good starter for new scramblers.

The north side of the ridge had snow so we were forced to climb on the more exposed side. It gave the route some real pucker power near the top.

I forget the exact date. I went solo and remember interesting and somewhat exposed mixed climbing followed by a 1300-foot glissade from the saddle.

A great scramble on a warm but windy winter day. Ridge was in great shape. We brought a rope but never needed it. My 2nd time on this route.

Attempted Kelso Ridge on a dubious winter Saturday. We bailed onto the North Ridge after deciding to abort. Trip report is here

Took a long awaited trip up Kelso ridge - the knife edge section and the exit onto the white rock was definitely the highlight of the climb. Watch for loose rock down low on the route, I set loose a rock the size of a microwave that looked well anchored.

This was my second successful trip on Kelso Ridge. The first was about a year ago. Both trips were fantastic, with incredible views, great exposure, and great hiking conditions. The weather was perfect yesterday -- temps in the 60's and a slight breeze. We saw very little snow, none on the trail. This is my favorite hike/route in Colorado.
