Argonaut Peak is a prominent satellite peak of the massive Mt. Stuart. The easiest route up Argonaut (class 2 scramble) is the south route from Ingalls Creek. The West Ridge, a longer and more complex ridge traverse, demands good route finding and solid 5th class rock skills. Approach is from the south via Ingalls Creek, as for most routes on nearby Mt. Stuart.
