|Peak:||La Plata Peak (14er)|
|Date of Information:||06/08/2013|
Snow clear to tree-line. The basin below the southwest ridge is still filled with snow to a one metre depth. The switch-backs to the southwest ridge are intermittently snow-covered. The summit ridge is snow-covered to an unknown depth. I ran in my running shoes and DID NOT use any traction device or ice axe.
