Route Climbed: South Slopes Date Climbed: August 10th, 2003  Sucess!

I got a beautiful early start, and as I proceeded on the trail I could notice people just getting up. It was perhaps 5:30 am and I had already comfortable distance made up. I chose to hit this up instead of Grays as most people do 1st, I got the privacy and the solitude on the summit that I sought. I also got a chance to hang out with the mountain goats....

Route Climbed: Kelso Ridge Date Climbed: Summer of 2004  Sucess!

What a fun climb. I loved the exposure, and the 4th class climbing. We did it without ropes, but we came down the standard route. Cant say i would reccomend downclimbing the ridge without a rope and protection.

Route Climbed: Kelso Date Climbed: october 21 2005  Sucess!

Harry sugar snow covering most rock including the knife edge. Spent lots of time uncovering holds and trying to kick steps into powder covered scree, not a lot of fun. Could have used snowshoes for decent, lots of post holing. summit all to ourselves. Eight hours for a four hour trip.

Route Climbed: saddle from Grays Date Climbed: October 8, 2005  Sucess!

There was a bit of snow on Grays but passble without gear. There was a big dump the next day so it is probably different now. 2:45 up to Grays, 1:00 across saddle to Torreys, 2:00 down.

Route Climbed: traverse from Grays Date Climbed: October 2004  Sucess!

Fog on the ridge between Grays and Torreys made route-finding tougher, but we just stayed on the ridge and were fine. Sliding down the snow on the way down was a rush!

Route Climbed: Kelso Ridge Date Climbed: Dec '03  Sucess!

Good winter climb. No avy hazards except for the approach. Found it easier to descent the ascent route than to go down the regular route due to avy conditions.

Route Climbed: Stephen's Gulch Date Climbed: September 17, 2005  Sucess!

A nice, close, easy peak to climb. Not isolated like some, but boasts an impressive view. Saw some mountain goats not but 10 yards off the trail--they didn't seem too worried about us. If only it were hunting season.
