Successful climb of Kelso Ridge today - great bluebird day. True mixed climbing on Kelso right now -- good amount of both snow and rock. Crampons and axe both helped a lot and are pretty necessary in my opinion. Photos of the ridge included.

Post-holed essentially every step on the way back to the TH.

Definitely some rough patches along the road, but was able to drive to within 0.2mi of the upper TH with 4wd.

Were you post-holing with or without snowshoes?

Decided not to bring them. I don't think they would have made that much of a difference tbh
