The blow-down trees begin just after the side trip to the falls along Browns Creek. However, on 5/15/2012 a crew was beginning to clear trees. They anticipated help from the forest service beginning 5/16, so it is possible that by now (5/18) the trees are cleared all the way to Browns Lake. Trail maintenance will still need to be done. Anyway, Tim and I hopped, skipped, and jumped our way through the downed trees. Ascending the gully to 12,700 feet was a mostly snow-free affair. Beyond that we were on and off of snow on the ridge, never needing micro-spikes.

Antero (and Tab, for that matter), should once again be considered climbable from Browns Lake via Browns Creek due to the work of the chainsaw wielders.
