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.

Via Baldwin Gulch  Sucess!

Only 9.5 hours RT. Small bootpack lower down on the road. Not much snow up there. Had bitter cold temps in the morning...probably 0 to -8 would be my guess. It feels like winter up there but it certainly doesn't look like it.
No one else all day.

Late Fall  Sucess!

This was a fun, quick outing in the late fall. Good 4WDing to the river crossing. The road after the crossing was blocked by an ice sheet. The hike from there was ~3,200 quick feet of vertical.

Baldwin Gulch  Sucess!

Would not recommend hiking this road... you're competing with motorcycles, ATVs, and lots of other 4WD offroad vehicles (and their fumes/noise). Was not a fun hike by this route.

Browns Creek  Sucess!

A nice mountain

Snow  Sucess!

Last peak of the season, snow already all around, very pretty mountai but I didn't find any aquamarine.

Baldwin Gulch  Sucess!

Drove up the Baldwin Gulch road to the creek crossing, then hiked up the road towards the summit, cutting up a couple of gullies to shorten the distance. Total distance 8.9 miles. Started at 7:30, finished at 1:30. Was joined by my 8 month old Golden Retriever, Loki (his 4th 14er), Luke and his his 9 year old Husky, Genesis. This was my 31st 14er.

Windy, but nice  Sucess!

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.

Antero  Sucess!

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.
