Frist Climbs  Sucess!

Together with Decatur (12,890 ft) and Square Top (13,794), Mount Argentine was one of the first peaks in Colorado I climbed. The date is just a guess - it was quite a long time ago. We camped at Shelf Lake, gained the ridge to the west, and then hiked the ridge to each of the high points.

Trifecta  Sucess!

Summited Square Top Mountain, Argentine Peak and Mt. Wilcox on a bluebird day from near the Guanella Campground. Saw lots of mountain goats between Square Top and Argentine and wild flowers were everywhere. Still a little snow here and there but it can be avoided.

From Waldorf Mine  Sucess!

It was a cool, windy day. Climbed with wife and 4 year old daughter. They made it almost to the top. Have been back to Waldorf many times over the years. The road has deteroriated over the years. Quite rough down low. Better towards the top after it levels out. Nice Front Range summit.

both sides of Argentine Pass  Sucess!

Climbed the north ridge from the pass, after summitting Mt. Edwards. A few small ridge points make for enjoyable scrambling. Nice views.

NE face ski descent  Sucess!

What JT said. As a side note, it's possible to skin from the Guanella Pass Road to the summit without ski crampons. One brief steep spot on the summit ridge requires a bit of side-stepping, but otherwise an ideal peak for ski touring.

Route Climbed: Via Silver Dollar Lake Trail  Sucess!

The well defined trail was a little crowded (as is to be expected this time of year). Once above Silver Dollar Lake and only a few other climbers were about. An EASY hike!

across Square Top  Sucess!

Didn't realize how long of a day this commanded. Beautiful weather though. Got some good practice on the snowfields too.
Froze in the morning and fried in the afternoon.

via south slopes from Square Top

Did Argentine from Square Top via the south ridge. The snow was soft enough to go without crampons, but I left my snowshoes on. Great views in all directions on this bi-centennial.

Hiked up the Leavenworth road. The 20-miles turned out to be longer than I thought.
