Standard Route  Sucess!

Absolutely beautiful day in the Sawatch. We were above the clouds when we crested the summit ridge after camping at the creek crossing the night before.

Southeast Slopes  Sucess!

Hiked the Southeast Slopes from camp along Little Browns Creek with my friend Keith. This was my second time on Antero's summit. The first was via the jeep road from Baldwin Gulch Trailhead two years earlier.

Baldwin Gulch  Sucess!

Met a miner on the way down with some interesting stories about his rival and their armed confrontations. It was the most interesting part of the hike.

From the road  Sucess!

Started at the first stream crossing. Driving up the road is the biggest challenge on this hike.

Baldwin Gulch Road  Sucess!

I started from the very bottom just before 6, just as it was starting to get light in the east. I did cheat a little bit when I left the road and took the southernmost drainage straight up the hill to avoid the switchbacks. I reached the summit at about 10:20. It was pretty windy and chilly on the way up, but it warmed up a bit and the wind died down once I got down from the summit. Lots and lots of 4WD vehicles and dirt bikes going up the road. On the return, I was offered a ride from some other hikers at treeline. There was no way in hell I was going to turn that down! We picked up two more hikers on the way down, and we arrived back at the cars just before 2PM. This is the last of the Sawatch 14ers. Now it's on to the Elks, Sangres and San Juans.

Antero  Sucess!

My first experience with lightening occured on Antero. I was about 400 ft. from the summit at 10am and a freak storm came up. The hair on the people coming off the summit was standing straight up and that's when I knew I needed to turn around. Pretty scary experience but bonded with some great people! I went back a week later and summited with the most beautiful, clear blue sky I've ever seen.

Perfect  Sucess!

Probably the best weather I've seen on a 14er. Great views, not a lot of snow. What a great day...

Browns LK backpack  Sucess!

Backpack to lake was harder than peak climb, only because of 60 pound pack. Left Browns LK for summit at 6:20am and on top by 9:55am. Used narrow drainage described in the Roach 14ner book to get to the flats sooner rather that staying on the road. Backpacked out the next day.

Bagged another  Sucess!

Weather was much cooler than the previous three 14ers. Needed to use topo map and compass after leaving the main road. Beautiful views at the top including view of Mt. Princeton.

My First 14er!  Sucess!

Finally, I summited my first 14er. Man, it felt great. It was a beautiful day. No clouds, and we could see forever. Fun scramble at the end, at least for me.
