 Late Spring on Antero   

I'll tell you what I'm liking. All the TRs so far from this Memorial Day weekend! I'm hoping for an overflowing cornacopia of hiking reports as the days go on here.

I climbed Mount Antero and great was the joy thereof. Great weather, mild wind (until the summit) and I wasn't too pushed physically.


Met some cool folks up there. And enjoyed, as always, a fantastic burger at K's in Buena Vista.

Vital Stats:
Start Time: 6am Baldwin Gulch TH
Creek Crossing: 7am
Pt. 13,800: 10:30am
Summit: 11:30am (My first am summit in a long while)
Base of Mount Cronin: 1:15pm
Decided not to climb Mount Cronin: 1:18pm
Back at car: 4:30pm

I seem to find myself having great times on peaks that are typically described as unimpressive. Antero was one of those for me. I loved it.
