Route Climbed: approached mountain from the w south west Date Climbed: sept. '99  Sucess!

After a night of summating shavano and t2, then north carbonate, a 13 'er just west of antero, I approached from the west then climbed the actual peak along the standard route from the sw around 9:30 in the morning under good conditions, descended from there along the jeep trail north down baldwin gulch and on to grouse canyon along the western slopes of mt. princeton and summated princeton at nightfall.

Route Climbed: Standard Date Climbed: July 13, 2001  Sucess!

Did the peak as a trail run. The four wheel drive trail makes a great run or bike and ends within a few hundred feet of the summit. Nice View.

Route Climbed: West Slopes and North Ridge  Sucess!

I have mountain biked and climbed Antero. I did my own route from the North but I don't recomend it for others, It involved allot of scree work and a very exsposed 5th class move. I desended the West Slopes route. I mountain biked the West Slope route and biked to 200 yards from the summit! I biked from the summit down and it was a classic ride highly reconmended for expert mountain bikers!

Route Climbed: West Slopes Date Climbed: September 17, 2000  Sucess!

Mt. Antero was the third 14er bagged by my friend Duane and I in September 2000. Originally we had thought to drive up the Baldwin Gulch Road in my 9-year-old Toyota 4Runner, theorizing that the road couldn't do too much harm to my old vehicle. Although many other travellers seemed to agree with that assessment for their own vehicles, we decided instead to park at the main road and hike the 4,900 feet and 16 round-trip miles, if only for the training value. We moved very fast and had a fantastic walk in beautiful weather, and we never regretted our decision to walk even with all the other vehicles on the road.
