braindancerExcellent hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 5, 2013


Did this as a day-hike. It is long and strenuous (22 miles round-trip) but I found it quite enjoyable.

Peter50Bear In Meadow at Mt Langely/Chcken Springs Bog
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2014
We went up to Chicken Springs Lake, I wish I had some pictures of the bear but it was way out in the field. I am sure that bear is still in the area, last year we hiked the same route and saw a bear behind a bush about an hour into the hike, it ran into the same meadow, perhaps 1/2 mile above the meadow spot we saw the bear at this time, it was proably the same bear. Do you kow this trail, the meadow/bog folllows the trail almost to the crest where the trail splits in two.

I've been on the Cottonwood Pass Trail many times. I never saw a bear, though. Lucky you!

Peter50Bears at Mt Langely Meadow
Date Climbed: Jun 26, 2014
I was hiking the cottonwood trail and to the left is a large meadow. About ten minutes into the hke I saw a giant mother bear with two large cubs in the meadow eating and playing. I hiked to caterine lake and returned 5 hours later and the bear was still there, it was an awesome sight. Has anyone esle seen this bear?

DukeJHHot Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 29, 2014


2nd of my 2014 California 14ers. It was a hot day. Ascended New Army Pass. Met a dad and son near the summit and descended Old Army Pass with them. A large snowfield choked the top of Army Pass but it was passable if you were very careful.

Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2011


See my trip report, "Langley High Camp".
Really enjoyed camping above timberline. No mosquitoes, expansive views, beautiful night sky - couldn't ask for more.

irrationalistAstounding Beautiful  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 13, 2013


Its always a treat when the route to the peak is just as beautiful as the views from the summit. Did this as a solo day trip. A tiring trip to Old Army Pass. Old Army was clear and snow free. However, by the time I got to the top is was all cloudy and muggy preventing any real photos from being taken. Mt. Whitney was large and in charge from here.

Tried this mountain two other times, but both times others in the party caused us to turn around. This time I just did it myself. A lot of scree at the top, and not really any true trail near the summit.

The lakes on the Army Pass route have to be some of the most beautiful in the world. I kept expecting to find Grizzle Adam's cabin.

Lenny72Another Successful Summit!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2009


An easy ascent but one of the best views from the summit of any mountain I have ever climbed in the United States. Also got a nice, freezing swim in one of the lakes and bitten on the eyelid by a mosquito in the middle of the night, swelling it shut. Unfortunately, I also saw a woman who had fallen to her death on my way up and saw her wrapped in a space blanket awaiting removal of her body from the mountain.

ROSENCLIMBERRe: Another Successful Summit!


Do you know where/how she fell? The standard route is pretty easy... Was she rock climbing?

PastorronBeautiful and Strange  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2012


We day hiked Whitney the day before so we were really sore. Backpacked into the Cottonwood Lakes and spent night. Went up via Old Army Pass. No problem with route. Scramble to the top was fun. Very strange route. Loved soaking my feet in the freezing lakes after.

haha1First 14er
Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2011
We had just finished a thru hike of the JMT from Tuolumne Meadows to Devils Postpile, plus a hike to Cloudripper. Was very much conditioned to the altitude so didn't have issues with altitude sickness this time around - unlike the previous attempt the year before.

dakineSummer dayhike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2013
Long dayhike on a beautiful summer day. No wind, no clouds. Army pass looked impossible from the lake, but yes there is a trail. One spot had snow and we had to step below to get around. Amazing views from the top. Started at 7:00 a.m., finished 13 hours later. This was my second 14er.

jrnewmannFun, Easier 14er but the Sand Sucks  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2013


Made it up my fourth fourteener yesterday, it was a lot of fun, not too challenging although my friends struggled due to altitude. The climb to the summit is kind of sandy and slow but not awful. The toughest part of this hike is the distance, it's just a long day no matter what. Old army pass has zero snow right now but who knows when it will start to snow again. Old army pass is definitely the way to go, it's really not exposed or concerning if you are sure on your feet. Great peak!

kc7sqdGreat views, NAP  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2013
We had a great time climbing Mt. Langley via New Army pass. The trail up New Army Pass is one of the easiest and well-graded passes in the High Sierras. In some spots, however, the grade up the pass is so shallow that long switchbacks are needed to gain elevation. I would be OK with a little steeper grade and shorter trail up New Army Pass. From the pass, it's a long but easy traverse to Mt. Langley. Fun scramble up the class2/3 rocks to get to the summit plateau. The views are amazing from the summit, and we had perfect weather. One of my favorites!

Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2013


Hiked from Horseshoe Meadows parking lot, 10 hours from car to car via Old Army Pass. On the summit, found out about Pat Hadley's death. I had planned to hike Cirque Peak but lost the urge. Descended in a smoky haze due to fires in SEKI.
