There are no problems driving to the Baldwin Gulch 2WD trailhead, but that is as far as you can get currently. There is a good packed trail all the way to the turnoff for Upper Browns Road that continues toward Baldwin Lake, but there was no apparent packed trail going up Upper Browns Road. The spurs are largely windblown. I only made it to 13,750--no summit this time.
Image # 1: At treeline along Upper Browns Road, looking south. The spur I used is in the middle of the two gullies.
Image # 2: Looking up the spur I used (the one just south of the gully where Upper Browns Road switchbacks) with Antero in the distance.
Image # 3: Looking back down the spur, with Point 13,870 in the background.
Image #4: Looking north at the final 0.6 miles of the ridge from around 13,700.
