13.5 hrs of winter  Sucess!

attempted antero on the last full weekend of winter expecting an easy cruise up a well-beaten trail. a little more snow than i thought had fallen during the week, making trail breaking much more challenging than i bargained for. other climber caught up ~13,300' and i gladly used his steps the remainder of the way! #35/100 in winter, 21/53 14ers.

standard route-winter variation  Sucess!

Camped at 11750' right off the road near treeline. Climbed wind scoured talus and hard snow just south of the prominent gully seen from treeline. The ridge run was a bit of a wallow, but not bad. One of the coldest hikes I've done as the temp hovered in the low single digits all day. Continued on to White and Cronin and we were beat!

Standard Route  Sucess!

West Ridge  Sucess!

Busted straight up the West Ridge from the second creek crossing, steep route but direct shot to the summit and it avoids the road. Traversed over to Mt White and then descended the road back to the car. Not too snowy for this time of year, the road was still dry until about 1/2 mile above the road split (11,000'). Second time up Antero.

Side trip up Antero  Sucess!

We never intended to summit, but we took the side trip from the $WD parking up this. A very easy Class 2 climb. Very enjoyable.

Met up with a member of and set off from the 2WD trailhead shortly after midnight. We hiked slowly, stopping now and then to watch the perseids in the night sky. Summited around 5 AM and stayed for the sunrise.

Antero and White  Sucess!

Wife, dog and I. Wanted to escape the Fourth of July crowds so backpacked up Little Browns Creek. Goodness, what a beautiful hike. Only saw a handful of people on the summit, but saw a plethora hiking up the road. Headed over and tagged White. Highly recommend Little Brown Creek hike.

Summer & Winter (x2)  Sucess!

8/20/05 - standard route from 11,000 ft. Traversed to Cronin afterwards. Easy 14er but I found it to be enjoyable.

1/24/09 - Winter ascent from the bottom of the road. The south ridge was more interesting than I imagined with snow. A long battle with wind and blowing snow was required to reach the summit.

2/14/10 - Short backpack to camp at 11,750 along road. Loop over Antero, White & Cronin the next day. Very COLD.

Quick work  Sucess!

Nice jeep road:) Antero was a nice follow-up to our long Belford/Oxford combo the day before. And quick too from the top of the 4WD road.

Bagged all but one of the spines along the final ridge to the top. Fun times with Db and Andy Mac! Sublime summit that I didn't wanna leave. Then on to North Carbonate and Mount White.
