This was an awesome route. Took me around 9 hours car to car. We came down the standard route.

Climbed this one a little later than I should have and got wet. Conditions on top were perfect, though and I had a great time. Its kind of neat seeing Independence Pass from the Summit.

I climbed from inside La Plata Basin but not the North Face as I was low on time so exited to the west and joined the std route.

I lead nine amazing OB students up this mountain. The weather was ideal and there was abundant wildlife – marmots, pikas, and ptarmigans. We had a spectacular journey.

Great snow route, tons of snow up there right now. I hiked the nw ridge route to the ridge line, then dropped into the bowl and traversed to the couloirs.

Summited via the NW approach. Trail ran much of the route making it to the summit and back to the parking lot in 2 3/4 hours. Only person on the summit this day.

It was cold, windy, but an otherwise wonderful day. There was less snow than we expected, but one could hardly complain about the views anyway.

I saw La Plata Peak from Mount Elbert's summit a few days ago, so I thought to give it a try.

My hike started at Lake Creek Trailhead at 7:30 am. The views were amazing. Got to the top at noon. Took a few pictures of the snow covered summit and of the other ranges to the east and west.

Went to Independence Pass summit after the climb to see la Plata Peak touched by the last sunrays of the day.

I climbed with my father and some of his work friends. Climbed from the South at Winfield. Another great alternative, as we didn't see anyone until nearly the summit. Some steep parts, but overall a great mountain with a nice summit. Distinctive shape really made it cool.

The ridge was challenging enough without the weather fighting me and my group the whole way up. Rain, hail, snow, and a strong wind all day. An exciting and fun route, tougher than expected. Quite the class 3 adventure.

Exciting ridge scramble especially with full packs in a hailstorm so powerful it was like being in a giant popcorn popper.
