 Antero via Browns Creek   

Image
Me and my friend from Guatemala (Max Baldetty) started out from the car at Browns creek around 7:40 and realized we read the trail description wrong and would actually be going on an 18.5 mile hike rather than a 6.5 mile hike.
Image
I was happy to walk through meadows rather than up a 4WD road though.
Image
After a while of hiking we got to an enormous area of downed trees which was reminiscent of the downed trees I found on Harvard/Colombia.
Image
It took about an hour and a half to work through all the downed trees.
Image
Has this been climbed before? Rock quality looks perfect.

After the trees we reached Brown Lake.
Image
After a quick snack at the lake we started to go up the 4WD road towards Mt. Antero.
Image
Image
As we got closer to the summit it looked like storms were starting to move in and Max told me to go summit.
Image
I ran up to the summit and got a shot of me and the cairn then headed back down.
Image
Image
On the way down we found that two people had cleared part of the trees with a chainsaw.
Image
Thank you so much!

But not all of them yet.
Image
We got back to the car at 6:40. Overall a long but beautiful day.

I misread the same route description you did, but caught it a day before I was about to leave. Kudos to you for getting that nasty surprise and still completing the route. A little too long for me!
