eric broute climbed: kelso ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2006

eric b

started at 7:00 am and summited by 2pm we took the kelso ridge ascent and there was hail and snow above 13,500. it made for slick conditions on the knife edge and on the sharks fin. it was very memorable and highly recommended. some traversing early on the ridge was sketchy due to many loose rocks.

Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2004


An early summit for 14ers, we got groppel'd on the summit, but not a bad one to kick off the '04 season.

Fun route with DonnieB, Jeff & Jim (from Atlanta), and Chris (from Tulsa). Met a fun group of college kids from KY.

Went on to Grays Pk, "The Rascal", and Kelso Mtn afterward.

Good times.

Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2006


Started from Horseshoe TH around 10,500 (my Saab did not like the road). Long walk up the road and quick ascent up SW slopes to Grays, then down and up to Torreys. Long descent back over the top of Grays and down to the car.

Grays/Torreys just like millions of others. But at least I signed the climber's log on summitpost!

First ones up Kelso ridge of the day, except for the 7 summiteer who passed me and my friend. We hit the buttress head on this time which made things more interesting. Knife edge is a blast.

granddeityRainy Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2006
Summitted with some dark clouds fast approaching, started down, got hit with lots of rain and hail, but no lightning or thunder. I got to use my rain gear for only the second time on a fourteener, all in all a very nice day.

Third time's the charm. Sleet and bad weather turned us back on two previous attempts. This time we were rewarded with perfect weather and lots of friendly nanny and baby goats on the trail.

Very beautiful day for a climb, got away from the crowd on the Kelso ridge and had a very interesting climb to the summit.

Second to Torreys, of course. Didn't know if I could handle both on the same day since these were my first, but I think if you're in sound shape and have the proper motivation, it's definitely doable.

Great day of hiking, going up the Kelso Ridge is highly recommended for those who don't mind class 3 climbing.

BeginnerClimberGreat addition to Grays Peak!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2006


Did the easy hike up Grays, then rode the saddle over to Torreys, making my 7th official 14er (also did Mt Cameron between Democrat and Lincoln but it's like 20 ft short of being "official"). Anyway, it was a great little hike from the saddle! Of course it was almost standing room only at the top, but my day was made by 2 guys who summitted without shirts or packs and very little supplies. Reminded me of Bill and Ted from "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure." Also, it was strange that I got 4 bars for cell service but couldn't complete a call. Oh well, except that I forgot to tell the wife which peaks I was climbing today. OOOPS! Anyway, I hiked back down to a little bit of cloud cover but no precipitation until I hit the car. AWESOME DAY!

Crowds? Try it on a snowy, sleety, socked in day like I did. Bye-bye crowds.
