|Peak:||La Plata Peak (14er)|
|Date of Information:||06/26/2011|
Climbed NW ridge, skied N face. The ridge is nearly dry to summit, on two small snow crossings. Climbed in trail runners with no problem. N face is in from about 15ft of true summit. Dropped in at 10:30 with snow already pretty soft, but still good. Hike out back to standard trail is very wet and there is plenty of rock snow and willows to deal with. Plan on wet feet unless you wear your ski boots.
