|Peak:||La Plata Peak (14er)|
|Date of Information:||01/29/2011|
Perfect day on La Plata with many people reaching the summit. Lots of snow, but there's a good trench in place all the way now. Use it while you still can as it will save you a lot of energy. Ascended the ridge using the winter variation. Watch for the left turn marked with an arrow and follow. Stashed the snowshoes before ascending the ridge and did not regret it.
