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.
Hiked with Square top. nice views
10/30/05 - Started from near Waldorf Mine and hiked over McClellan, Edwards, Argentine & Wilcox. Nasty windy day.
3/15/12 - With Wilcox & Otter from the Guanella Pass winter closure above Georgetown.
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.
We did the north ridge from Argentine Pass & Waldorf Mine. We saw goats butting heads on the pass.
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.
Wife, dog and I. Argentine and Wilcox loop from Silver Dollar.
Climbed the north ridge from the pass, after summitting Mt. Edwards. A few small ridge points make for enjoyable scrambling. Nice views.
Did Argentine as part of a cool loop from McClellan to Otter, just before the first big storm of the year came in. 2nd time on Argentine.
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.
Climbed from guanella pass with gahugafuga, skied the face, then traversed back to the Wilcox saddle. Saw large canine on slopes of wilcox. Beautiful weather, awesome day.
Climbed Argentine with Square Top, Wilcox and Otter mountains. The ridge between Square Top and Argentine was amazing.
En route to Edwards, back to Argentine, Wilcox and Otter. 8 hours roundtrip.
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!
Beautiful day; goats galore!
Climbed east ridge from Wilcox. Great day, saw no one on the peak or in surrounding areas.
From Waldorf mine, it's a pretty easy jaunt. I remember this being one heck of a windy day!
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.
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.
