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.
