farrisglCirque Peak via Cottonwood Pass  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2001


We reached the Summit Cirque on the fourth day of a short backpack trip doing the Horseshoe loop starting over Cottonwood Pass. Over the course of the trip, we camped out at Chicken Spring Lake, two nights at Soldier Lake and the last night at Long Lake under the stars after the Cirque ascent. In doing Cirque we dropped packs at New Army Pass and day hiked the summit. The summit provided a beautiful view over the Cottonwood Lakes on a perfect August afternoon.

DebVia New Army Pass Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 1, 2008


Surprisingly easy trail in and out, wasn't sure of the mileage so I ran quite a bit which paid off due to impending rain/snow clouds that descended early in the afternoon. Ridiculous views of Kings Cyn and Whitney range! Sandy trail tolerable due to precip from the night before. Fresh dusting of snow still lay in shaded recesses and Langley's slope, bet there's even more now. tee hee

The climb didn't take too long after leaving the trail below New Army Pass. Raced the sun back to camp.

Wife and I hit Cirque in 2004. At the time, it was the highest I had ever been. Great views, nice trail, pretty scenery.

HeyItsBenNorth Slope  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2007


Went solo (again!) from 12k when my partner tired out. I went up the right side of the north slope. Mostly class 2 with a few mild class 3 sections. Had quite a scare when some rocks slid out from under me and a refrigerator sized boulder above me shifted a few feet - took a while to stop shaking. Beatiful summit. Came down the left side of the north slope, a few use trails here. Got rained on on the way down.

Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2007


Ascended Cottonwood Pass and soon thereafter headed up the south ridge for the long traverse to Cirque Peak. It rained a bit while I was on the summit, which hastened my departure.

Luciano136New Army pass loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 12, 2007


Hiked with Peter (below). We did the Cirque Peak traverse loop with an alternative descent. For some reason, it was harder than expected; I think we all had some altitude issues as it took longer than other harder peaks I've done in the past. Although being long, the approach over NAP is downright beautiful!

Oh, yeah, as Peter mentioned, from NAP to the summit seems to take forever?!

Easy day hike via cottonwood pass. A bit cooler than I expected up high--it never got above about 45 degrees, while it was about 70 in the parking lot. Go figure. A burger at WPS afterward, of course.

Augie Medina

From our High Lake camp, we took a route from the lake that involved some 3d class rock. Took us less than 2 hours. On the return, we followed the northwest ridge to New Army Pass and dropped back down along the switchbacks to High Lake.

Day hiked from Horseshoe Meadow. Left at 6:40, got back at 2:45. Super weather. Took a bunch of pictures, did something funny with the camera and only had one when I got back. It had to be that one

Interesting landscape at the summit plateau connecting Langley and Cirque. Saw a few jackrabbits in this very desolate terrain. Nothing tough, but just a long ridgeline traverse that was a lot longer than it seemed.
