Standard route up to the saddle to Torreys, then Grays. Lots of snow but some people were still in sneakers. As one trip report was titled, the road is tougher than the hike.

Spent two days approaching from Loveland Pass in winter, the non standard routes up Grays and Torreys are great.

skyward22Kelso ridge in winter  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 14, 2009

skyward22

Me and Joe Miller headed up Kelso Ridge 03/14 and were met with a challenging climb. Lots of fresh snow on the ridge created powder conditions on rock slabs which was hard to scramble up. A few exposed traverses with 70-degree snow and only ~10 ft. to self-arrest if needed before accelerating off the mountain.
Some cornicing on the knife edge and on other parts of Kelso.
Summitted at 4 p.m. after 7 hours on the ridge. Was very technical due to conditions; one other party climbing beside us did it in about the same. Pretty cool to watch some skiers go down Dead Dog Cuoulior from the vantage point of the ridge.

I lived in Colorado for several years and climbed Grays some years back. With a free afternoon while on a business trip and good weather, had the opportunity to do this peak. Only saw one other person on the Thursday afternoon a dn a few bighorn sheep. Nice climb on a nice day.

If you've climbed this one before and would like to do so again, but with a twist, try it on the longest day of the year, but start at the opposite end of the day -- 5:00 in the evening. Also, park at the top of Loveland Pass and approach Torreys via Grizzly Peak. I was lucky that this particular Summer Solstice also featured the Flower Moon (wiki that one). I tried coming down with the headlamp for a while... terrifying!!! Hello night climbing!!! (Buy Freedom of the Hills)

Nice hike, but ice was an issue. Best to bring treking poles after summer.
