Good Grays views  Sucess!

I went up Argentine Pass from the west (Peru road, Horseshoe Mine). Saw a family of mountain goats. Several short steep snow crossings that might have mandated use of an ice axe in the early morning if not for a boot pack in place. The mountain is nothing too exciting but some pleasant tundra walking. There was still some snow in the Edwardian couloir and if I had crampons, I would have climbed it that way instead

Horseshoe Basin  Sucess!

This route would be much shorter in the summer... Not-so-great weather, so I didn't tag Argentine.

Grays, Edwards, McClellan, Ganley  Sucess!

Long ride. Descent from this ridge route into Stevens Gulch is sketchy and unrealistic, so watch the weather. After Ganley summit, I followed the ridge west awhile until I could descend the steep slopes (to the road to Grays lot), which are intermittently cliffed out. Grays, Edwards, McClellan, Ganley, IPA.

Repeats  Sucess!

11-1-14: Edwards, Grays and Torreys together from Stevens Gulch trailhead solo. Road open and clear (might change with snow in the forecast!). Lower trail dry, but snow packed up higher, traction can come in handy.

3-6-16: Edwards via West Ridge from winter closure at I-70 with Rachael. Didn't even need snowshoes, well packed out approach trail and then 90% dry on the ridge.

Argentine to Edwards to Grays

Up at 4, trailhead at 7. This is a rarely traveled straight forward classic, last done when I was 52, 72 today, with Kevin, 22. Spectacular sunrise and autumn golds, but, alas, no goats today. Photo ops 4+. Not more than 15 souls on Grays, inc a doobie crew of 5. 8 hr, 45 min rt. ... within the average, apparently. 5-hour energy drink for a fully alert drive home. :) !

From Waldorf Mine via Argentine Pass  Sucess!

Started up at 8:30am, hiked the jeep trail up to Argentine Pass then along the divide to an empty summit at 10:40. Back down to the truck at 12:30pm. Gorgeous day! My first alpine summit of 2014, sweet!

From Argentine Peak  Sucess!

My wife and I headed over after climbing Argentine. We thought the views were good from Argentine, but really enjoyed them from the summit. We were glad to be off Grays and Torreys, as there were crowds of people on the trail and summits.

From Grays TH  Sucess!

Long summit ridge. Climbed from Grays TH, longer route but the views were worth it.

Still 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!!

East slopes   Sucess!

Great morning climb with a nice drive up to the mine at 11,500 feet ...Was very windy though but the views of Grays, Kelso, Bard, Parnassus Biersdadt and Argentine were great.

Gondwanaland  Sucess!

Climbed as part of a "Gondwanaland" attempt from Square Top Mountain. Snow conditions slowed us down and we bailed after Mount Edwards.

Edwards and McClellan from Waldorf Mine  Sucess!

We enjoyed an absolutely beautiful day on Edwards and McClellan. Heck, I even enjoyed the drive up to the mine in the Jeep! We had a blue-bird day with barely a cloud in a sky and enjoyed 1,100 of glissading on the descent.
