2011-04-30  Route: E ridge
Posted On: 2011-05-01, By: d_baker
Info: We started up Baldwin Gulch Rd (CR 277) from the winter closure (CR 162). Some vehicles have driven up the start of the Baldwin Gulch Rd, but only a short distance of maybe 100yds or slightly more, but only to be stopped by too much snow. I don‘t see where this is an advantage at this point. The road is mostly continuous snow, and was firm for us. From the junction for Baldwin Lake & the Antero route, we headed SW into the Baldwin Lakes drainage. Snow stayed firm beyond this junction, but we eventually put snowshoes on less than a mile from junction due to new powder. Overall, firm snowpack with maybe 3-4" of new snow on top. After stashing snowshoes near the mine at 12,586‘, we took the S slopes to gain the E ridge of Mt Mamma. New snow of ~6-8" inches was bonded with a firm crust layer underneath. Kicked steps up ~30 degree slopes to ridge. Ridge was mostly windblown. Pic‘s: 1--13,626‘ & Princeton from Baldwin Gulch Rd 2--Antero‘s W side 3--Cronin‘s NW face 4--views N from summit, with Princeton & Friends
