There are three major routes on La Plata (14,336'):
1) Northwest Ridge (standard, from Highway 82)
2) Southwest Ridge (from Winfield)
3) Ellingwood Ridge (Class 3-4, from Highway 82)
4) Traverse: Southwest and Northwest Ridges (Everett to Winfield trailheads)
The loop on our map is Ellingwood - NW Ridge
We have not yet implemented a "Winter" variation for these routes, but Colin Simon & Jason Maki did the Ellingwood Ridge route in 20 hours, 1/27-28/2016.
NOTE: Colorado 14ers should not be considered “backcountry” where you can go anywhere you want; their popularity can create a plethora of braided social paths that lasts for decades in the fragile tundra. So if there is a trail, please stay on it. Resist the urge to cut that switchback. Hundreds of volunteers work really hard to stabilize our beloved mountain environment (read here); please support our community and environment.
