bpv_UWNW Ridge Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2005


Climbed with my brother on a beautiful July day. Took our time; 8-9 hrs. RT. Summit to ourselves for ~45 minutes; only saw 2-3 other hikers the whole day. Awesome views from the top!

I thought the route from the south was enjoyable. We started hiking immediately after driving from Dallas which made for a bit of altitude sickness

My first 14er, and my first peak in CO! It was only my 2nd week living in Colorado, so I think I dragged a bit due to the altitude, but other than that, it was a great time!

Took route from S described by Edrinn as little-used, to find that no longer true once book was out :-)

A pleasant hike. The route is very well marked with cairns and it is difficult to get off track. This is one of Colorado 14er's more conveniently located trailheads as it is located on a paved road. Enjoy your hike and then treat yourself to a 4 star dinner in Aspen. Your body has earned it, no doubt.

Late start and clouds were building throughout the day but it never rained or thundered--great day climbing with my brother, his first 14er. A little snow near the summit but no need for gaiters. Came from sea level, climbed to 12,800 the day before, and had no real altitude problems on La Plata. A great nontechnical climb. Can't wait for the next CO trip!

Praise to the Fourteener Initiative for all their work on the trail. It is among the most solid and well-defined I have encountered on a Class 2. Scenic trail: we saw 2 rainbows early in the a.m. and there were thousands (literally) of colorful mushrooms spotting the forest floor. The views were awesome too, of course.

Climbed northwest ridge with Ian. Drizzled and rained all day and we never had a clear view of the summit. Lots of marmots though, gotta love those little guys.

Great hike.. this is a long day for sure, but very beautiful. Very few spots of snow on the NW ridge route, but did have a short fun glissade on the upper mountain. It even flurried a bit on the way down

Drove out from CA to visit friends in CO. Climbed La Plata with almost no acclimation and had no problems. Great hike except for the loose slope leading up to the ridge.
