With Grays  Sucess!

Found this mountain a little more interesting. Looks like some fun ski routes on the face.

Good Times  Sucess!

Via Emperor Col, 5 1\2 hours RT with beautiful conditions. No problems at all and one of the best Glissades I've ever done, over 2000' solid glissade

Grays and Torreys  Sucess!

Spent two days approaching from Loveland Pass in winter, the non standard routes up Grays and Torreys are great.

Kelso ridge in winter  Sucess!

Me and Joe Miller headed up Kelso Ridge 03/14 and were met with a challenging climb. Lots of fresh snow on the ridge created powder conditions on rock slabs which was hard to scramble up. A few exposed traverses with 70-degree snow and only ~10 ft. to self-arrest if needed before accelerating off the mountain.
Some cornicing on the knife edge and on other parts of Kelso.
Summitted at 4 p.m. after 7 hours on the ridge. Was very technical due to conditions; one other party climbing beside us did it in about the same. Pretty cool to watch some skiers go down Dead Dog Cuoulior from the vantage point of the ridge.

Nice return to Colorado  Sucess!

I lived in Colorado for several years and climbed Grays some years back. With a free afternoon while on a business trip and good weather, had the opportunity to do this peak. Only saw one other person on the Thursday afternoon a dn a few bighorn sheep. Nice climb on a nice day.

Kelso ridge was great. Good intro for novice scramblers/hikers. Continued to Grays

Reworking the Mundane  Sucess!

If you've climbed this one before and would like to do so again, but with a twist, try it on the longest day of the year, but start at the opposite end of the day -- 5:00 in the evening. Also, park at the top of Loveland Pass and approach Torreys via Grizzly Peak. I was lucky that this particular Summer Solstice also featured the Flower Moon (wiki that one). I tried coming down with the headlamp for a while... terrifying!!! Hello night climbing!!! (Buy Freedom of the Hills)

Standard Route

Nice hike, but ice was an issue. Best to bring treking poles after summer.

Via loveland Pass  Sucess!

This is a great roller coaster hike, from Loveland pass you can summit 3 13,000ft points including Grizzly Peak. We had a secound truck parked at Stevens Gulch, its a little much to reverse this route.

No. 3 in hat trick  Sucess!

14er #3 in as many days. Started from the TH at 15.09. Summited at 17.07, left the top at 17.21, & back down to the car by 18.52. Kelso's a beautiful ridge, & a delightful climb! Snow made for some really nice views. Interesting to think back on when I was there with friends (Zathan & Mark) in college- seems so long ago in the meantime... Beautiful day to be in the Rockies (also with my mom & dog down below)!
