|Peak:||Mt. Antero (14er)|
|Date of Information:||10/02/2013|
This was before the latest storm of 10/4: Water eroding down the road as mentioned in earlier reports has subsided, but the road is still rough. Multiple good campsites along the road about 12,000'. The switchbacks above 12,500 have snow, limiting access to UTVs/ATVs only, but easy to hike, no traction needed.........Just a drag hiking up the road. Final pitch was snow-free, but I took the SE aspect to avoid the brutal, cold wind. I saw nobody on the peak or the road above the switchbacks, except for one mineral hunter. Some wildman had taken a bike to the summit on 10/1 - I saw the tire tracks!
