La Plata on Friday?

Postby jab4k2 » Thu Oct 04, 2012 3:10 pm

Is anyone planning to hike La Plata's NW or SW ridge on Friday? Does anyone know how much snow is on the Mts?

This may or may not help you, but I'll post it anyway. From yesterday(10/3) atop Sherman:

I was on Huron last Saturday. 3-5 inches of snow on upper 1000' (Norhtwest face). I think you'd be much better off doing La Plata's Southwest Ridge as opposed to the Northwest Ridge if you're trying to avoid snow. Has anyone been on this route in the last couple of days?
