 Mount Antero from Baldwin Gulch  

This was my7th 14er over the last two summers after moving from Austin, TX. I mention this because I consider myself a beginner and most of the posting that I have read are from more fearless climbers than myself. 3 friends and I started our journey at 8am after the 40 minute 4WD up to the trailhead from the bottom of the mountain.

I found this 14er to be somewhat easy. It is basically a walk up a wide trail until you get to ridge. There was little snow on the trail except for a couple of places. On the ridge it got a little windy,but the climb was straight forward with nothing too concerning.

The climb to the summit was similar in my mind to that of Torreys from the saddle. Very straight forward. For those that don't like to climb on snow with some slope to it, you can stay to the left and walk up the rocks. I feel more comfortable on rocks at this point that walking up snow without snow shoes.
