La Plata Peak Trip Report (#4309)

John and I started from the W. Winfield TH at 7 am and approached La Plata from the South face. I found the trek through the woods to be rather welcoming and the hike was very scenic. We were able to make it to the summit by 1 o'clock because this was John's first 14er and he needed to take several breaks along the way. The trail is well established until you reach the first false summit. From there the cairnes lead the way. I look forward to climbing La Plata from the North.
