Summitted Torreys and Grays today, started at I70, went up Kelso ridge, then across to Grays, down Grays standard.

I didn't use any traction or flotation, the other 3 people I came across used micro spikes or Yaktrax. Snow was pretty minimal, Kelso wasn't much harder than in summer conditions.

A few vehicles made it all the way to the TH, one had chains, one didn't. There's a really nasty ice patch in the first mile up the road. If you can get past that you'll make it all the way.

Mine is this ridge. Did you notice? I've been up it 3 times and it never disappoints. Nice work Will.

Do you know if there‘s been much (any) snow since you were there on the 23rd?
