Route: Edwards+McClellan via Argentine Pass
Posted On: 2020-08-08, By: madmattd
Info: I skirted below the summit cone on Edwards from the final saddle on the SE ridge at ~13,500'. Did a descending traverse to the McClellan-Edwards saddle (~13,400'), one short talus field to cross otherwise class 2 tundra/rock mix. Worked quite nicely actually. Easy ascent/descent of McClellan and ascent to Edwards, lots of trail segments and pretty easy class 2 off-trail travel. Not 100% on which summit of McClellan is the "real" one, so I tagged them all. The NE of the pair seemed to be a touch higher. 
 
Route: Edwards + McClellan to Argentine Pass TH

Info: Grassy Class 2 the entire way between Edwards and McClellan. Traversing back from McClellan to Argentine Pass trailhead has one snow crossing, and it is easy to stay at the proper elevation contour. The old pack trail down from Argentine Pass to the trailhead in Ruby Gulch is long but easy and contains one Class 2+/Class 3 section a couple feet in height. Do not try to cut the trail, it's extremely steep and loose off-trail.
