Second of the two  Sucess!

After a week of perfect sunny weather, the clouds started moving in when I reached the saddle from Grays.

I made it a fast climb.

Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

Blue skies gave way to cute little fluffy clouds and mild temperatures for a perfect day on Kelso Ridge.

2nd 14er in CO  Sucess!

Bad luck with the weather the night before in camp and also in the morning but it cleared. Traversed from Grays. Has more of a feel of a true summit compared to Grays and it has the better views IMHO. A lot of people though.

Up Kelso in the Clouds  Sucess!

Light rain and thus wet rock made for an interesting start to the ascent of Kelso, although luckily it dried up a bit before the knife edge. Ridge and summit were mostly socked in with cloud and fog making for very low visibility and cool temps (for August).

Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

I climbed Torreys with some people I met the previous weekend down in the San Juans. We started at 5AM. It was pretty windy most of the time. We encountered two other hikers on the ridge. There were a handful of people on Torreys. We rested there a few minutes before heading over to Grays.

Via Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed Torreys via Kelso Ridge. After summiting Torreys, traversed to Grays Peak and then to Mount Edwards. Fun scramble, great views!

via Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

I'm not into scree slogs, so I don't think I would have done this peak without Kelso's Ridge or Dead Dog.

Cool Peak  Sucess!

Slept at the TH, started around 7:45 and did Greys and Torreys. On the way down, we did an amazing glissade. These were 14ers number 14 and 15 for me. These were also are 8th and 9th 13k+ peak in 3 days. Cool views and an amazing area. Definitely worth the visit.

My second 14er, which I traversed to after climbing Grays Peak. Also have been on the Kelso Ridge, but weather didn't allow me to summit.

Grays and Torreys  Sucess!

Winter ascent of the pair, started at the bottom of the road, but surprisingly it was still drivable for about 2 1/2 miles. The trail is well packed down and snow shoes are not necessary. Yak-trax or mini-spikes may be helpful in a few hardpacked spots, but I didn't use them. Upper part of Grays is pretty dry, skis would be basically worthless.
