route climbed: kelso ridge  Sucess!

started at 7:00 am and summited by 2pm we took the kelso ridge ascent and there was hail and snow above 13,500. it made for slick conditions on the knife edge and on the sharks fin. it was very memorable and highly recommended. some traversing early on the ridge was sketchy due to many loose rocks.

My 5th 14er  Sucess!

An early summit for 14ers, we got groppel'd on the summit, but not a bad one to kick off the '04 season.

Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

Fun route with DonnieB, Jeff & Jim (from Atlanta), and Chris (from Tulsa). Met a fun group of college kids from KY.

Went on to Grays Pk, "The Rascal", and Kelso Mtn afterward.

Good times.

W/ ascent of Grays  Sucess!

Started from Horseshoe TH around 10,500 (my Saab did not like the road). Long walk up the road and quick ascent up SW slopes to Grays, then down and up to Torreys. Long descent back over the top of Grays and down to the car.

Lots of people  Sucess!

Grays/Torreys just like millions of others. But at least I signed the climber's log on summitpost!

Kelso Ridge Again  Sucess!

First ones up Kelso ridge of the day, except for the 7 summiteer who passed me and my friend. We hit the buttress head on this time which made things more interesting. Knife edge is a blast.

Standard Route with 11 Year Old Son  Sucess!

Camped the night before near the Stevens Gulch trailhead. My son's pace is picking up nicely. Grays then Torreys.

Rainy Day  Sucess!

Summitted with some dark clouds fast approaching, started down, got hit with lots of rain and hail, but no lightning or thunder. I got to use my rain gear for only the second time on a fourteener, all in all a very nice day.

Stevens Gulch TH Ascend Grays N Slopes, S Slope to Torreys  Sucess!

Third time's the charm. Sleet and bad weather turned us back on two previous attempts. This time we were rewarded with perfect weather and lots of friendly nanny and baby goats on the trail.

Beautiful Day

Was a great day with no threat of weather. Climbed with the masses, but a good time none the less

Kelso Ridge to Torreys and Grays  Sucess!

Very beautiful day for a climb, got away from the crowd on the Kelso ridge and had a very interesting climb to the summit.

Second Fourteener  Sucess!

Second to Torreys, of course. Didn't know if I could handle both on the same day since these were my first, but I think if you're in sound shape and have the proper motivation, it's definitely doable.
