Southwest Ridge  Sucess!

I hiked La Plata with some Facebook friends. This was my second time on La Plata, and the weather was much better this time. It was sunny all day, and the afternoon storms gave us a pass. We started hiking around 7:15, reached the summit at 10:15, and got back to the trailhead at 12:15.

I could never write a route description. Ran into some 5.easy trying to avoid the few remaining snowfields, but it was probably unnecessary. 4h30 from TH. Trip report

Went up the Standard Route  Sucess!

A fun day despite not particularly great weather. It never rained, and there was no thunder or lightning, but there were plenty of low lying clouds which blocked all the views once we reached the ridgeline.

It was my son's first 14er, so regardless of the weather, it was a very memorable day.
