Route: Antora meadows

Info: Follow the Antora meadows 4wd road from the brewery creek gate. It goes all the way to .9 miles below the summit. Straightforward and easy. Just stay on the road. 
 
Route: East Slopes

Info: We started at the unnamed creek north of Slaughterhouse Creek (took CR LL56/FS 861 from Villa Grove; 2WD is fine) and ascended northwest until we were on a shallow rib. We did not descend back down the western side of this rib but continued up towards 12er Sheep Mountain then curved around under it. There was a snowfield crossing or two but nothing major and the snow was mostly supprtive; no postholing. We then ascended directly up Antora from the Antora/Sheep saddle which was steep and on dinner plated trash. Kind of irritating but could definitely be worse. Instead of descending the way we came we went over Sheep Mountain and Sheep Mountain's northeast summit, avoiding all snow. We descended back to the Sheep/Sheep Northeast saddle then down towards Mosquito Lake on steep, hummocky dirt, then found an old disused road that we followed back to our cars.

Route: East Slopes of Sheep Mountain

Info: I started at a turnout where forest roads 861 and 862 meet. This spot is located at (38.3293, -106.1839) WGS84, some 6 miles in from the start of 861; you turn off for 861 before reaching the village of Bonanza. Road 861 is much smoother than 862 and can probably be driven by 2wd cars. This starts you off around 10,680' and makes a rather short day of Antora. From this TH, walk the fenced-off road for about a mile. Shortly after a switchback, and before the road starts downhill, leave the road and bushwhack west through trees. Gain the ridgeline if you want, or stay underneath it with it on your right (north), but if you encounter a barbed-wire fence keep it on your left (south). The terrain is briefly steep near treeline but mellows out quickly. Above treeline head for the Antora/Sheep col at 12580', then SW to Antora's northwest ridge, then straight up to summit.

Info: Summer conditions. Ice axe/microspikes unnecessary. Google Maps didn't quite end up at Brewery Creek Guard Station, so use directions from https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/riogrande/recreation/ohv/recarea/?recid=29296&actid=42
