Loop of McClellan, Edwards, Argentine, Wilcox from the Waldorf Mine (Leavenworth).

Class 2; no specialized gear used.

Ascent to the saddle between E&M is dry with one small, avoidable snowfield around 13kish. A big, dry tundra slog over A&W. Descended W's N ridge before doing a descending traverse to an old cabin and faint road, which allowed us to cross the willows. A better descent option may be to head back to the/A/W saddle and catch a mining road after a section of scree.
