    Snow still packed 2-3 feet deep on upper section of CR321. Willows and creek bed below Kelso are starting to melt but still some long stretches of deep snow. Took Kelso ridge to the summit of Torreys, followed footprints in snow the whole way. Knife edge and upper half of the ridge still has a lot of snow. Serious rockfall/wetslab concerns on the east face including dead dogs couloir. snow heated up much quicker than I anticipated becoming completely unconsolidated around 8:30am. Start early and get off any steep, east facing slopes well before 9:00am

    The trail from the Loveland Pass TH is well worn. If hiking to Grizzly or Torreys Peaks be sure to take the cutoff trail to the right about 1/4 mile from the TH. That will bypass at least one small climb. The reason I state that is because this route has a lot of elevation gain and loss. There are three fairly deep saddles and I've never liked giving up elevation.

    The TH at Loveland Pass starts out well above the tree line and on this particular hike there was a steady wind with little blockage.

    The views to the east are better than those to the west. Looking west one can see all of the ski resort building as well as Loveland Pass Road.
