Climbed with Ian on a great day. Hike back to the car seemed to take forever.

What a fantastic place to celebrate the 4th of July! We sauntered to the summit in a nice 3 hours and 15 minutes. [EDIT: Which is not bad for two old ladies, one with a pulled ligament in her left knee.] It was a beautiful day and I nearly fell asleep at the summit...until I realized I'd been laying on my camelback which drained into a puddle on the summit. So, which one of you is the young college intern who asked "Mind if I smoke?" at the summit? Partner: Deb.

By far the most scenic 14er I've done to date. Beautiful views all the way up, spectacular summit. So, does everyone hike with their dog in CO?

I saw six people today and 2 had dogs. So answering your question, YES.

Alone on this route the entire day, which was surprising on a 14'er. I guess people think there is only one way up...

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!

Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2008


Third time is the charm! First time I had to turn around for weather on the summit ridge, second time my heart just wasn't in it and this time I was determined. A good climb from Winfield TH. Getting a little late in the prime season and got a touch of rain and hail on the descent.
