Kelso trail  Sucess!

Did Torreys/Grays as my first solo 14ers...used the Kelso trail at the advice of an avid hiker and am so glad I did. Loved the scrambling and chose a few of the more difficult routes along the way. Beautiful morning...was 2nd to summit...made it down just as it started to rain.

Kelso Ridge  Sucess!

With friends, Chels and Bryant. We descended off the ridge near the knife-edge via a Class 4 wall, near top of Dead Dog Couloir, then continued up. Dicey. Lots of fun. Patches of snow. Continued to Grays.

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.

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.
