sevenviiWindy, but nice  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2012


Took my 6 year old and family friends on this tame hike up Mt. Antero via the standard Baldwin Gulch route. Would have much preferred Browns Creek, but a backpack was not in the cards. Still had a wonderful day with family and friends.

Date Climbed: Jun 2, 2012


Shaylee, Kessler and I decided to climb a 14er this weekend. We decided on Antero since I hadn’t done it yet and since it was assumed (correctly) that it wouldn’t require an ice axe.

After getting up fairly early we drove a ways up the 4wd road before parking. Antero is an easy mountain for a 14er, but the climb can be a bit tedious. We grinded our way up the Jeep road to the saddle and then climbed to the summit on the steep rocks. We summited around 10:30 AM.

It was sunny going up, but clouds were gathering when we were at the summit, so we didn’t spend long on top. After enjoying the view we made our way quickly down the mountain. There was a little thunder and it began to snow very lightly. Since we were on a north south ridge with a drop off to the west the snow was "falling upwards". Not at an angle, but straight upwards caused by the updrafts buffeting the mountain. It wasn't that windy, but since the snow was light and fluffy, it was "falling" completely vertically and upwards. It wasn't blowing wildly up, but looked just like it was falling up, in the same manner that it falls down. We felt upside down!

After the brief snow and wind, the weather was good and we were back to the vehicle in no time. It was a nice little climb.

Parked at the upper TH, girlfriend (wife now) tossed up the tent and spent the morning snoozing while I ran up to the summit and back.

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2011


Bagged Antero from Baldwin Gulch on a quiet sunny morning. Pretty lonely on the way up but too much jeep traffic on the descent. Round trip time: 6 hrs. I summited Mt. Sherman 4 hours later taking advantage of a rare storm free afternoon.

Alexc and I did a snow trudge in mid-October. We saw a hunter on a 4-wheeler. He commented that we were tough. You have to be if you're dumb.

Hiked West Slopes route from Baldwin Gulch TH. Scramble on the final section of the ridge at 13,800' was nice. After summiting Antero continued on to Cronin Peak. Beautiful weather, nice view from the top.

loraeToo much snow
Date Climbed: Mar 27, 2010
First attempt at climbing the 14ers and there was too much snow. Made it just past 11,000 ft and had to turn around, starting from Browns Creek trailhead. Going back this summer when the weather's better, now that I know what to expect.

Done as a snowclimb via the North Gully and North Ridge. Big, FUN day! Didn't summit due to confusion in choosing an exit in the upper part of the gully.

Out of all of the 54 Colorado 14ers, this was the most miserable day of all. Very cold, extremely strong winds and snow on top.

Antero seemed easy, so added Cronin (previously North Carbonate) to make it more interesting. Beautiful day!
