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.

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.

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.

Date Climbed: Mar 1, 2008


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.
