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.
I was happy to walk through meadows rather than up a 4WD road though.
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.
It took about an hour and a half to work through all the downed trees.
Has this been climbed before? Rock quality looks perfect.
After the trees we reached Brown Lake.
After a quick snack at the lake we started to go up the 4WD road towards Mt. Antero.
As we got closer to the summit it looked like storms were starting to move in and Max told me to go summit.
I ran up to the summit and got a shot of me and the cairn then headed back down.
On the way down we found that two people had cleared part of the trees with a chainsaw.
Thank you so much!
But not all of them yet.
We got back to the car at 6:40. Overall a long but beautiful day.
