Last Minute - La Plata Peak Northwest Ridge Thurs 2013-02-21

It looks like La Plata Peak will be getting 6-8 inches of snow tonight, and maybe another 1-2 during the day tomorrow, but the weather looks very calm (though cloudy) and not too cold.

This is last minute and as challenging as the winter route was for me last time, I might not be able to summit given all the fresh snow that'll be coming in, but I want to get out and go for a hike. I think even with the snow I'm ready to give La Plata Peak another shot.

Note: I will turn back if the weather turns rough (high winds, heavy storming), and I will be fairly slow trudging up the winter ascent to the ridge below tree line.

I'll be on the trail at 6am tomorrow Thursday 2013-02-21. If you'd like to join I'll see you at the trailhead.

This happened. I didn't summit but I got much farther than I did last time.
