Route Climbed: La Plata Gulch Date Climbed: 08/24/2001  Sucess!

Brent Wessel and I (TJ) climbed La Plata Peak in 2 hrs 37 minutes, which was a pretty steady pace. When we started the climb at 8:18 AM, the air was a crisp 28-degrees, and there was frost on the grass. It was already starting to feel like Fall at this elevation. Along the way we saw marmots, pikas and ptarmigans. All in all, it was a beautiful day of climbing. We relaxed on the summit for over an hour enjoying the view and sunshine. I was very impressed with the good condition of the trail.

Easy hike with no route finding. What a cool view of the Ellingwood Ridge. I had the best view of the Elks Range.

Route Climbed: Northwest Ridge  Sucess!

My wife and I did the Northwest ridge route, it was a nice hike but cold and windy. There has been allot of work done on the trail which made it even better.

Route Climbed: Southwest Ridge Date Climbed: September 20, 2000  Sucess!

La Plata was the last of six 14ers that my friend Duane and I summitted during 6 wonderful days in September 2000. We got an early start because we needed to get on the road for home in Washington (not D.C.) immediately after the climb. It was a fantastic day to end our week-long adventure, but it was obvious from the change of weather earlier in the week that fall had arrived.
