14 May 2005. Wes Go works his way up what I consider the first "crux" of Kelso Ridge - the pseudo-chimney through the small "headwall" at the base of the Ridge. At the chimney's narrowest point the snow turns to alpine ice for a few feet. Crampons are not necessary as you can escape the snow at that point by making a few third and fourth-class moves on the rock to the right. The summit of Torreys is visible in the distance in the upper left corner.
