Yep..did Little Bear, Ellingwood, Blanca and Snowmass all as snow climbs, and did Rainier this summer. I just haven't been on Kelso's before, and was curious as to how it might be. I don't think it'll be too tough, but just wanted to make sure there aren't any crazy specific things to watch out for.

Micorspikes would add a month or two the spring/autumn hiking season.
Well worth the investment in my opinion.
Deep winter when you have avy situations is another game.
