Today was awesome. Blue bird day. Drove a bit up the road and hiked to the TH. The trail is boot packed the entire way and no need for show shoes. I made my way up Kelso Ridge and then over to Grays. The conditions on Kelso were very favorable. I used crampons and wore a helmet. I did not need to take out my axe. The knife edge is pretty much a snow bridge that can be walked across. The trail is easy to follow over to Grays and on the descent.

Photos are of the route, a Class 3 section, a Class 2 section and the "Knife Edge"

knife edges are usually easier with snow on them as it appears in your pic.
