La Plata Peaks & Ridge Hike

Friday, September 17, 7:00 am Register by Email

We will climb four peaks on the west edge of La Plata Canyon: Parrott (11,857), Madden (11,972). Star (11,761), and Gibbs (12,256). It will be a LONG day, mostly off-trail or on sketchy use trail with lots of steep ups and downs once on the ridge. But it is a glorious ridge hike and there is no significant exposure or scary stuff except for some crummy rock coming off Gibbs. It will be a loop hike with a short car shuttle. Hunting season – wear orange. Limit 10
