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.
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.
Sorry, but I cheated with the Jeep to 13.7k. Fun road, though!
Climbed up a large bowl on the South slope from Browns Creek then descended by way of the jeep road down to Alpine. Peak #3 of my 2008 Nolans attempt.
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.
yep climbed it and found some aquamarine chips.
Another perfect day to hike a 14er! Did Antero with fellow SP'ers shanrickv and Alan Arnette. As the Antero page states, not exactly the most scenic of the 14ers but the surrounding views were tremendous! Fun scramble after leaving the 4WD roads to the summit as well as seeing 11 mountain goats are a nearby mountain. Only 2 more in the Sawatch left!
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.
Nice climb by the gem prospectors.
...and it felt really high. =)
This was my fourth time climbing Antero.
This was my first time climbing Antero. I did it via the standard route hiking from the 2WD road.
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.
Beautiful area and a neat mountain. i was up there all alone for a few days in the spring snow.
Did the "usual" route via the road, most of the way. Very nice day climb with wife.
Started from the bottom. Weather was perfect and didn't see another sole all day.
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.
We felt our way to the top throught teh mist, no aquamarine hunting that day.
I finally made it halfway through the 14ers! A wonderful hike, we started at the stream crossing, and climbed from there, beautiful weather, and a great view!
Started at the first stream crossing. Driving up the road is the biggest challenge on this hike.
