See Grays Peak update for road condition and standard route condition.

Kelso Ridge is very dry with only a few areas of snow. The knife edge can be walked across, but take care going around the white granite rock just after. Microspikes can be helpful in the snowy areas but generally are not needed until after the knife edge and granite rock where the slope is snow-covered with talus sticking out for the last push to the summit. An axe would be helpful towards the very top but otherwise not too necessary.

The south slopes route from Grays Peak is half hardpacked snow and half dry.
