Route Climbed: Grays Trail/Grays Peak Traverse  Sucess!

I'm not positive of the date as I hadn't starte keeping a jounal at that point. It was in 1978 over a holiday weekend and the weather was just perfect, so I picked the July 4th time frame. My three companions and I went up Grays first then traversed to Torreys. It was one of those prefect days to be on a summit.

Route Climbed: Grays Date Climbed: August 1994  Sucess!

Didn't stay too long on top. We didn't bring warm enough clothes this day to linger. The walk across the divide was a delight though!

Route Climbed: Kelso Ridge Date Climbed: July 9, 2005  Sucess!

Loved Kelso Ridge, what a fun route! Before the knife ridge, directly climb the class 4 head wall, its more direct and I thought was really enjoyable. This was my second time up Torreys, the first was in combo with Grays from Chihuahua Gulch in June 2003 when I still lived in Chicago.

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.

Did it with Grays as my second 14er. So many people on the summit, I could not sit down. Next time will be Kelso ridge.

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.
