Nice early spring day  Sucess!

With Michelle . Easy haul up east ridge from GP CG. Interesting weather. High wind and almost constant flurries on the ascent with ever-decreasing visibility. Descent had bluer skies. Naylor lake completely frozen.

From Otter/Wilcox Drainage  Sucess!

Went up the Otter/Wilcox drainage to avoid the private property near Naylor Lake. Some of the worst deadfall and worst willows I've ever encountered. Glad this was a loop and didn't have to come back this way!

Silver Dollar Lake Trailhead  Sucess!

Climbed up the SE ridge with my wife before heading over to Otter. We were surprised at the ease of this climb. We enjoyed views of Argentine, Square Top, Bierstadt, and Evans from the summit.

With Rhett. Started at the road closure, summited Square Top, Argentine and Wilcox. We finished coming down the Silver Dollar Lake Rd. Made for a nice cirque.

Sunset  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.

Fun hike with skis :)  Sucess!

I enjoyed hiking up Mt Wilcox with skis in spring conditions. The mountain was wind-swept on most aspects with layered wind-deposited slabs on east-facing slopes. We got a few turns in on crusty snow before enjoying being blown across the frozen Naylor Lake on our skis. The ski out via the snowshoe track was probably the most fun of the day. A good 6-hour outing.

Otter and Wilcox  Sucess!

Climbed with Darin from the parking area for Silver Dollar Lake, we also made the traverse over to Wilcox. Surprisingly dry given the recent snow storm a week ago, but windy on the summit (maybe that's where the snow went?). Good short fall hike, just under 6 miles RT for the pair!

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.

SE Face Ski Descent  Sucess!

Skied up through the drainage above Naylor Lake on continuous snow to near 12,800'. Bootpacked the remaining 600' to the summit on tedious tipsy talus and snow. From the summit, was able to billygoat my way down the initial talus fields until finding continuous snow on the SE face. A good ski descent, although probably only skiable from the summit through late April.
