Grays and Torreys  Sucess!

Attempted the Kelso ridge solo but turned around due to being alone, leaving my InReach at home, and high winds whipping over the ridge. Ended up summitting both peaks via the standard slog.

Grays and Torreys clockwise  Sucess!

3:3:23 clockwise. If you're going for a good time starting early definitely helps even on the downs since you don't have to stop/ weave in and out of people a lot less.

Via Trail  Sucess!

Got another chance to climb this (with Dave) after being denied the double by bad weather 11 years ago. Strong winds with gusts that would knock you over made it it difficult. No snow as of yet.

Grays and Torreys BDay Climb  Sucess!

What better way to celebrate the day before your birthday? Started at 4am and summited Grays around 6:30. At about mile 2, began to see snow bordering the trail, and then it quickly began accumulating. Got up to around 2-3 inches before the summit. Then, bagged Torreys right after sunrise before bombing down.

Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

Solo climb up Kelso. Didn’t see anybody else! Some good scrambling that is not too difficult. The knife edge is actually very short and the first half is not very exposed. The rock is loose in some places but bomber where it counts. Fun climb. Continued to Grays. 4:18 car-to-car.

Easy dayhike  Sucess!

Easy walk up, even after 5 hours' sleep in 2 nights and 3 consecutive days heavy drinking (thank you GABF). Much colder and windier on Grays than on Torreys. I was very surprised at the number of people. Although we started around 5 a.m., it was a bit of a conga line and we met quite a few people heading up even when we got back to the trailhead around 11:30 (we spent about an hour on the summit of Torreys).

Also, I counted at least 8 people playing music through external speakers, either on their phones or via Bluetooth. If you are this person...don't.

Torreys to Grays   Sucess!

Perfect day for a hike. No clouds in the sky and no wind on the ridges. Ascended via the standard route. Parked our car near the highway and bummed a ride up and back down from about a mile from the trailhead. Fall colors galore!

Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

Unique summit #100.. kinda cool, i guess?
The ridge is a fun route. Would be much more so had I been in any kind of altitude shape! 1st of season is always a lung burner (when you live at 600ft). 3-4 sections of fun climbing. Knife edge is really not that big a deal, unless you just have never experienced any kind of exposure before. Worst part of the route is the sections of just soul-crushing sandy scree..
I'll probably do it again at some point so I can bag Gray's as well. Weather came in.
