gkaufmanSummit healed all pain  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2008


After failing the year before on Mount of the Holy Cross I was back to Colorado to claim my first 14er. La Plata NW Ridge route was it. I will never be able to forget the feeling of accomplishment I had when I finally reached the true summit. Words can not describe how beautiful it was. It sparked something inside me that led me up Huron Peak, my 2nd 14er, two days later.

shknbkeNW ridge winter ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 31, 2009


Enjoyed a superb winter day on La Plata. Followed the trail until it started heading up La Plata Gulch, then made a beeline to the ridge to avoid avy terrain. The crux is a headwall that goes at class 2+ if you stay to climber's right. Snow was ~ 3 ft deep in the trees, which was not as bad as expected. Amazing views of Ellingwood Ridge in winter.

Solo ascent, solo summit. Lost the trail on the way up due to snow, but rock hopped and wallowed in the snow drifts all the way to the top. Gorgeous day, cold wind!

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.
