bumped into some hotties en route. Drop me a line if reading.
A different type of fourteener, jeeps and atvs all over the mountain. Fun hike! Nice area!
Long day on Antero, but well worhed!
Thank God for 4WD, which saved me a nasty stream crossing right before the upper trailhead. Nice day, but annoyingly windy on the ridge.
Turned back due to weather the first time earlier that year.
Hiked from Baldwin Creek. Ascended the west gully. The snow kept me honest. This was my second time on top. The first time (2008) was by Jeep, and that was my first time above 14K feet. Now Mount Antero, look what you've done to me!
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.
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!
Brought a friend for his first 14er. Beautiful day and a good start to the summer 08. Not sure exactly what day.
we snowshoed into Baldwin Gulch and gained the north ridge at the low point in the saddle
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.
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.
We were close to the summit at dawn. Great group from 14ers.com. Started from Baldwin gulch.
Met up with a member of 14ers.com 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.
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.
Climbed with Ian all of the way from CR 162. A long, long day...
And I don't want to do another 14er again any time soon
Fairly simple and straight forward.
60 MPH gusts made for a fun summit :-)
We were the only ones on the mountain all day. Unusual for a june summit. It was a cold and windy day for June.
