Wilcox and Argentine from Naylor Lake Rd. Road closed at Guanella Pass winter TH and mostly covered in snow. There are some dry patches, but saw skiers only have to take off their skis once. Brutal bushwack to the ridge to avoid private property due to varying snow conditions which was still varied on the way out. On the ridge, there are several snow fields to hike, but not too bad. Ridge to to Argentine has a dry line until the top where it has full coverage on the SE side. Brought microspikes, but never used them--snow was soft enough to grip and the constant transitions would have been annoying. Overall, I'd say its about 40% snow. Approximate route below.
