 Kelso Ridge VIDEO Trip Report   

Last Sunday we made a quick trip up Kelso Ridge for some fun scrambling. It was great meeting a few fellow 14er members on the summit of Torreys!

Kelso Ridge is a classic climb. I last did it in 2010, so we are headed up there again this weekend for a refresher course. Enjoyed your video! It really is helpful in understanding exactly what you are getting into. It made me excited to do it again!!!
What did you think of the white rock after the knife edge? I remember thinking that was the hardest part. But we went up and over last time due to icy conditions.

Hey thanks for watching! I didn't really think the white rock was too bad but I imagine that would be different in icy conditions. I think the first major wall was the most challenging portion of the hike but I didn't think the route overall was that bad. It was definitely an enjoyable day in the mountains for sure!
