From the end of FR 861, head west for about a third of a mile on an atv road until a fork to the left appears. Take the left fork of the road to its first switchback, then leave the road and head generally southwest toward Antora's not yet visible Southeast Ridge. The bushwhacking is moderate. Eventually, the Southeast Ridge becomes visible and is best attained via the ridge's north slope a little west of treeline.

Route Description

The slope appears steep, but is quite stable and goes quickly. Once on the ridge, stay on the broad crest toward the summit now about .75 miles west. Total mileage one way to the summit is 2.7. Return the ascent route, or continue north and descend southeast from the saddle with unranked 12,860 for a more gentle descent .

Essential Gear

No special gear required - trekking poles may be desirable as with other steep descents.

Other routes

There is a published route in Colorado Summits for Everyone using the Colorado Trail entailing a 13 mile round trip hike on the west side of Antora Peak with 1,400 vertical feet of talus slope leaving the trail to the east.
