Edwards, McClellan, Argentine, Wilcox Linkup  Sucess!

Rough 4WD road up to the Mine in the dark, but not hiccups along the way. Got a quick start up the mountain to Edwards, then stuck, close to the ridgeline to get McClellan. No easy path back to Edwards, so I cut across the basin towards a glacier and made way up the south side of that to rejoin the "trail" back to the saddle between Edwards and Argentine. Followed some mountain goats up to Argentine (though, the path they chose to follow was harder than mine). From there, the cloud were looking a little scary, but weather reports told me I had a few more hours. I picked up the pace and crossed the gap over to Wilcox. Stick close to the ridgeline—there's remnants of a social trail there that will protect your ankles a bit more and protect the tundra. Summitted Wilcox and booked it back to the saddle to then follow a social trail down into the basin. However, the trail disappeared and I had to bushwhack back to the road to follow it back to the mine. If using my GPS to do the same, I recommend almost always sticking to the ridgeline between these mountains. Whenever I strayed away, I found myself coming back.

From Wilcox Mine with Mount Wilcox  Sucess!

Hiked from the Wilcox mine with our boys and dogs. They bailed not too far from the summit (windy, they could have made it but I didn't push them). Met a goat family on the summit. Headed over to Mount Wilcox next.

Climbed with Rachael, left the trail early and went straight up to avoid crossing some sketchy snow filled gullies. Traversed over to Square Top. Second time up.

A lot of snow  Sucess!

This was a great trip. Started at Naylor Lake, hiked up to the ridge to the Squaretop, Argentine, then continued a very loong ridge to Edwards, went back to Argentine and finished on Wilcox. It got dark when I got back to the forest around Naylor Lake and there was mess of fallen trees and deep snow. Lots of postholing!! There was a very strong gusty wind on the summit of Square top that I could not stand, I'd say about 50 - 70 mph. It got better later.

argentine pass via montezuma  Sucess!

Easy walk up normally,but when I went up this one it was a horizontal ice storm whiteout. Good times...lol. I wouldn't recommend doing something like that unless you know the terrain well previously.
