chicagotransplantRoute Climbed: Kelso Ridge Date Climbed: July 9, 2005  Sucess!


Loved Kelso Ridge, what a fun route! Before the knife ridge, directly climb the class 4 head wall, its more direct and I thought was really enjoyable. This was my second time up Torreys, the first was in combo with Grays from Chihuahua Gulch in June 2003 when I still lived in Chicago.

I got a beautiful early start, and as I proceeded on the trail I could notice people just getting up. It was perhaps 5:30 am and I had already comfortable distance made up. I chose to hit this up instead of Grays as most people do 1st, I got the privacy and the solitude on the summit that I sought. I also got a chance to hang out with the mountain goats....

What a fun climb. I loved the exposure, and the 4th class climbing. We did it without ropes, but we came down the standard route. Cant say i would reccomend downclimbing the ridge without a rope and protection.

1st: 9/2005 Kelso Ridge sweet climb. there are some big loose rocks along the left side of Kelso which would be best avoided.

Did it with Grays as my second 14er. So many people on the summit, I could not sit down. Next time will be Kelso ridge.

Harry sugar snow covering most rock including the knife edge. Spent lots of time uncovering holds and trying to kick steps into powder covered scree, not a lot of fun. Could have used snowshoes for decent, lots of post holing. summit all to ourselves. Eight hours for a four hour trip.

There was a bit of snow on Grays but passble without gear. There was a big dump the next day so it is probably different now. 2:45 up to Grays, 1:00 across saddle to Torreys, 2:00 down.

Fog on the ridge between Grays and Torreys made route-finding tougher, but we just stayed on the ridge and were fine. Sliding down the snow on the way down was a rush!

Good winter climb. No avy hazards except for the approach. Found it easier to descent the ascent route than to go down the regular route due to avy conditions.
