We were thinking about climbing the north face but the ridge seemed to make more sense what with all the boulders in the lower La Plata basin.
The first good view. This is Sayers BM North Face just SW of Laplata

SheRa’s moment of reflection
We had witnesses
A really cool zone
Another really great trip. The face isn’t all that steep. Maybe 45 tops. But who cares at this point in the year. We had great weather on top and by the time we got down to the trees we had a nice cooling drizzle.
Great to meet you SheRa and good seing you again JP. Let’s hook something up in August.
