At an elevation of 3,297 m (10,817 ft.), and with a prominence of 1,293 m (4,242 ft.), Monte Argentera is the highest peak in the Maritime Alps (a mountain range in the southwestern Alps). It is located in the Italian province of Cuneo, Piedmont, Northern Italy.
The first ascent of Monte Argentera was made by William Augustus Brevoort Coolidge, as well as a father and son team, Christian Almer and Ulrich Almer. Mr. Coolidge was born on 28 August 1850 in New York. He was a historian, theologian, avid mountaineer and member of the Alpine Club, and formed part of an elite group of climbers who became famous for being among the first climbers to reach the summit of peaks in the Alps never summited before. Among these were Monte Argentera, Piz Badile (1867), Jungfrau (1874), Les Bans (1878) and Scherbadung (1886).
There's an alpine trail (T4) leading to the summit.
The nearest mountain hut is Bivacco Franco Lorenzo Giorgio al Baus located 976m/3 201ft SE of the summit.
