We observed the field of GRB 210610A (Page et al., GCN Circ. 30160) with the 
Reionization and Transients Infrared Camera (RATIR) on the 1.5m Harold 
Johnson Telescope at the Observatorio Astron��mico Nacional on Sierra San 
Pedro M��rtir from 2021/06 11.18 to 2021/06 11.23 UTC (13.00 to 14.06 
hours after the BAT trigger), obtaining a total of 0.61 hours exposure 
in the r and i bands and 0.25 hours exposure in the Z, Y, J, and H bands.

We detect the afterglow with the following magnitudes and 3-sigma upper limit:

  r = 21.39 +/- 0.06
  i = 21.35 +/- 0.07
  Z = 20.74 +/- 0.10
  Y = 21.05 +/- 0.22
  J = 20.70 +/- 0.25
  H > 20.12

These magnitudes are in the AB system and are not corrected for Galactic
extinction in the direction of the GRB.
