This was a first 13ner it is straight forward. There is an obvious trail that climbs up under Argentine to a saddle. You can climb to Edwards to the left of the saddle or hike to Argentine. To trail from the saddle to the peak was not mark at all. So we to the level where the actual Argentine peek begins. It was super windy but no storms to dodge. We saw about 8 people the whole time. Began around 8 am and finished the trail at 2. Might have been faster if it was not for the crazy wind.
