You can get to the Tram from McClullen Mt. Though it will probably be July sometime before you can get to the top of McClullen. The Tram is due east on the ridge from McClullen.

Great! From the looks of the snow, probably won't be able to get up there until mid-late July by my guess. Also look for the Santiago Mine when you're up there.

To get to the tramway, Jacki and I drove up and parked on the ridge on the west side of Ganley Mountain. From there you hike E/NE past points 12455 and 12491 along the ridge and you'll get there:


For anyone who's interested, this is what it looks like from the top of Argentine Pass looking over into Peru Creek basin towards Montezuma. Notice there is a shelf, but it's really only wide enough for a bicycle.


This is from my 2009 Argentine Exploration Thread

Matt, could you post up some details of the run? I would like to hear what you found and what needs work. Thanks.

Think it might be a good idea to get some carsonite signs around the marsh area of Waldorf. Looks like people have been driving in it.
