Dayhiked with Balajisv and Shri. Pushed off the winter route by a cornice but got back on 500 ft. below. A long day that ended in headlamps.

Spectacular weekend and weather. Pretty easy route and amazing views, wow! Several routes to take but a nice little trail directly after the sign for Sequoia (to the right/north) was a lot of fun. Very active birds living among the rocks, but no idea what they were.

Desert SolitaireRoute Climbed: Bowl N of Army Pass Date Climbed: August 12, 2005  Sucess!

Desert Solitaire

Dayhike from Horseshoe Meadows. Went past the uppermost Cottonwood Lake and ascended the bowl N of Army Pass. Great cl 2 scramble, but the top was blocked by a 30 foot wall of snow. Since I didn't have an axe, I opted to climb the steep wall adjacent to it. It was pretty exposed 4th class, but not too hard with plenty of holds. From there, its the standard slog up the summit. Tagged Cirque enroute back to the cars and descended via Army Pass.

Beautiful day to climb Langley! This was my first 14'er so it was a special day :) Me and one hiking partner started at Cottonwood Lake #4 around 8:00 am, climbed up Old Army Pass, headed up to a red sandy saddle at about 12,000', dropped our backpacks, and dayhiked to the top. It took us awhile to find the route up the last 800' or so... There are lots of trails and it's hard to find one that's doable! Beautiful view from up there, expecially looking north to Whitney! Also lots of flowers blooming including sky pilot. Headed down around 3:30 pm and picked up our packs and then made our way down to Upper Soldier Lake. Saw 5 other people headed up or down that day.

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.

GuiltyRoute Climbed: Northeast Chute Date Climbed: 08/06/05  Sucess!

Guilty

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.

Went up the East Ridge from Tuttle Creek. Lots of class 3 climbing to be had = fun route. Cold and windy on the summit.

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.
