Day hiked from Cottonwood parking lot, 3:30am - 2:30pm with plenty of time on the summit and socializing along the trail. Beautiful views from the summit and along the way. Old Army is definitely the way to go. Once reaching the top of Old Army, head North (right), don't keep going straight or you'll lose altitude by the time you realize you are no longer on target for the summit. The summit from Old Army was the most tiring part...that Damn sand and scree makes for slow travel. There are a thousand different trails up the summit (follow which ever one you like or make your own) , the further to the east (right) the more technical the climb.

I and four buddies hit the trail head at 5:30 a.m. We agreed on a turn-around time of 2:00 p.m. Two of us bagged out early (at 12K' and 13K') due to altitude affects. I was the last to summit at 2:01 ;) and we walked briskly back to the pass under intermittent hail and rain. Able to glissade down the last 200' of lower army pass above the lake. Back to the car by 8:00p.m.

Nice hike on SPS trip. 12 people came on the trip, 8 made the summit. Four of us opted to go over the Cirque as a preview on Saturday as well.

From the Ashram,(church) followed the unmaintained trail to Tuttle Creek Canyon. At the end of the cayon by the waterfalls and you can see the NE Chute half filled with snow. I ascend the chute and scramble (class 3/4) to the summit. Descended the East Face and then rock skied down some no-name chute to Tuttle Creek Canyon, and back to the church for some praying.

I made it on my second attempt. I tried a year ago but turned back when I found myself in some boulders that I couldn't figure out how to get past.

Backpacked from Horseshoe Meadow, stayed at Soldier Lake, then headed up Mt. Langley and down to Cottonwood Lake #5. A great trip with my Ol' Buddy Chad.

Part of a three day backpacking trip with Ol' Walsher. Left the Horseshoe Meadow Trailhead and headed up over Cottonwood Pass to the PCT and down to Soldier Lake. The next day we hiked up the back (west) side of the New Army Pass Trail and cut over to Old Army Pass and picked up the trail to the summit. Managed to (slowly) drop down Old Army Pass with our ice axes and camped at Cottonwood Lake #5.

My first 14'er. I remember a short exposed section coming down Old Army Pass, but much better than heading up and over to descend the New Army Pass. A friendly group setup at the base of Old Army Pass invited us to stay for a wine and cheese happy hour, much appreciated after a long day. A great trip.

Lots of good hard neve on Old Army, we went up central chute with ice axe and crampons and had to tunnel thru the cornice at the top, Scary after we saw from above the huge crack between cornice and the snowfield above. The rest was an enjoyable snow slog to great views at the summit.

In August Pat Brenan and I climbed on the cliffs north of Cottonwood Lake #4.

We topped out on the plateau south of Mt Langly and decended down old army pass. II 5.8 ***

This was a long day. A slightly late start and even more delayed return to the trailhead.

I day solo effort; very long day after getting confused around the lakes and taking the chute just north of Old Army and climbing quite a ways before realizing it, reversing and correcting; estimate 24mi. RT.

Enjoyable dayhike out of Horseshoe Meadow. The Cottonwood Lakes area is beautiful. The climb from Army Pass wasn't as sandy as I'd feared, and the scrambling up to the summit plateau was more interesting than I expected too.
