Late notice, but good forecast tomorrow. Thinking of heading up Torreys via Kelso Ridge. Anyone interested?

We made it to the bump before the knife edge today before we turned back. Very cold and windy. The snow is soft and covers the loose scree which makes for some misserable climbing. Post a trip report if you guys make it.

Awesome effort winmag. Looks like some pretty tough conditions. You'll get it.
