Via Standard Route  Sucess!

Started around 5:45AM. Road was very, very icy on lower section below treeline. Don't bother attempting to drive up, and bring spikes or crampons. Trail was well packed the entire way. No need for snowshoes. Much of the road is dry above treeline as well. Got back around 2:30PM.

Successful Climb of Mt. Antero  Sucess!

It was a beautiful Saturday. Many others were climbing and driving various 4-wheel drive vehicles on the various jeep trails. There were 20 people on the summit when I arrived, and probably 10+ who I had passed on their way down. See my trip report/chronology of climb.

From Baldwin Gulch 4WD TH at the creek crossing  Sucess!

#1 7-5-16 W/ Yz. The 4WD road was max 3 mph to the creek. Great wx. Long grind on the road. Best part by far was the portion above the end of the road where a homemade sign warned about claim jumping! 3+37 up.

Standard route with a more interesting descent  Sucess!

With Megan Berry. Made what could have been a generic 14-er plod rather more interesting by coming down via the N ridge to Pt 13762 and from there NE then E to rejoin the Baldwin Gulch 4 WD road at the ford. One tricky part in a steep chute that cliffed out on the descent was surprisingly home to handy fixed rope. Thank you, someone!

Standard Route  Sucess!

14er #27. Hiked 14,275 ft. Mount Antero today. We drove on a rough and rocky 4WD road for a few miles and camped around 11,000 ft. On Sunday we drove further up to approximately 12,000 ft. and hiked 7 miles round trip up to the summit and back down in 6 hours. Finally finished Colorado's Sawatch Range 14ers!

Sawatch Range Complete  Sucess!

Saved Mt Antero for last because I heard it was boring as a 14er. Hiking the 4x4 road seeing gem mining operations and even the Discovery crew filming was interesting. Also nearby mountain slopes had cool earth reds and greens to look at. Kinda a long day with over 15miles, and 5,000' elevation gain from the Baldwin Gulch road. Started early at 5am to reach the summit at 10am, and back down in the heat at 1pm.

West Slopes  Sucess!

We drove to the creek crossing at 10,850 ft and then hiked from there. The 3 mi drive on the jeep road was the crux of the trip.

Finishing out the Sawatch  Sucess!

Prettier and more enjoyable hike than I expected, as it's not such a great mountain to look at.

Baldwin Gulch Road  Sucess!

Drove about 2.5 miles up, felt sorry for my car, so made my son and Duchess (14 years old) to hike up the rest of the road. I parted with them below Antero, and continue onto Mt. White and Cronin Peak.
I am so happy to be done with 14ers - there were at least 50 people on the summit! (church youth groups etc).

Good time on Antero  Sucess!

3 hrs, 5 mins to summit from Baldwin Gulch TH. Under 6 hours total. 5k gain over 12 miles. Just made the summit before weather came. "Be off the summit by noon" is a good rule of thumb except when it storms at 10:30am. haha.

Halfway done!  Sucess!

Halfway done with the CO 14ers! Hiked up from the overflowing river. Got the Outback up the road almost to the river, bumpy ride for sure. Car seems okay. A few snow patches across the road, but nothing impassable. No need for snowshoes or traction - yippee!

Nice hike  Sucess!

Antero was a nice easy 14er, if you drive all the way to the top of the 4x4 road it's not far at all to the summit. We stopped about 3 miles from the top and hiked from there.

Findin jems on Antero  Sucess!

Took most of the 4wd to the stream crossing and climbed from there. Fun day! Those jems are hard to find

Standard route  Sucess!

Hiked all 15 miles on a very hot day - the mountain itself isn't that pretty but the views were great.
