|Peak:||Torreys Peak (14er)|
|Date of Info:||04/08/2011|
Winter closure at Bakerville in effect. Snow general firm on the approach in the AM - by mid PM today it was warm and the snow was soft and snow shoes were helpful. Kelso ridge by 9 AM today was soft and resulted in lots of sinking to the knee or waist. This made climbing on the rocks preferred over the snow. I believe there was some new snow this week and perhaps this contributed to the less than great snow conditions. The snow was firmer on Gray's and the regular route on Torrey's from Grays even by mid day on the descent.
