Climbed Langley via Winter Pass. Made 13,150'; did not want to downclimb the pass in the dark. Good excuse to return soon.

Awesome summertime trip. Thunderstorms each night, bears roaming through camp and a group of kids that had a blast. Took most of them (my son included) up to Army pass where all but one bailed back for camp while Joey G. and I made the summit.

Left Cottonwood Lakes Trailhead the day before and set up camp at High Lake. We climbed Cirque Peak in the afternoon. Next day, our route to Langley took us over New Army Pass. A little windy on the summit but the views were as good as you could want. A dog reached the summit while we were there and this was quite a sight.

Can't recall the exact date, but do remember the epic. I was invited by a friend to join her and a group of others from the Sierra Club youth section in LA to climb Mt. Langley. There were about ten of us, including a trip leader and an assistant. Hiked to Cottonwood Lakes early on a Saturday morning. Got to camp in a hurry and after a quick vote decided to push for the summit the same day. All went well, except that the planned descent via New Army Pass was blocked with snow and ice. This left our large group the option of making a slippery, death-fall potential traverse of several hundred feet with the sun setting behind us or trying to find our way down (Old) Army Pass and walking around the Southern edge of Cirque Peak along the Pacific Crest Trail. We chose the later option, which also had snow but was much less exposed, and staggered back to our tents roughly about 20 hours after we had left the car the previous morning.

Hiked up Old Army Pass and went back via New Army Pass. Very nice day hike and good warm up for the 2005 Sierra Challenge.

My second late season acsent via Old Army Pass. This mountain always has a special meaning for me, so it was great to be back on top after 3 years. Amazingly clear day, great views from the top.

Just returned from a wonderful Mt. Langley climb Nov 5. Cold, but sunny and beautifully clear.

There's now snow on some steeper sections of the Old Army pass, making cossing some places a bit scary. Suggest wearing crampons and taking an ice axe. Otherwise, use the snow free New Army route. While it is somewhat longer in distance, it's totally snow/ice free so it doesn't take more time.

OK, the ONLY things I enjoyed about this trip to Langley was the Class 3 trash and the sun on my face while sacked out in a boulder cave; other than that, it was one foot in front of the other to a summit register. :P Spectacular view, what you would expect from the top of a 14'er, but the trip down was nearly as painful as the trip up. Check in the block.

My only beef about this route is the suggestion to take the "faint" trail heading south, up from Tuttle Creek (just before the bridge which takes you to the Stonehouse). This "trail" was a joke.....more like a faint game trail! All in all, I liked this route, espeically at the top of the southern gully leading to the flat section of the ridge. Quality 3rd/4th class scrambling. Great weather.... and nice sunburn!

Nice relaxing climb from trailhead to Cottonwood Lake 3 where we ditched our main packs and proceeded to the summit. Sky was blue with few clouds. Top of Old Army Pass surprisingly minimal wind. Climbed Class 2-3 rock formation below summit plateau to avoid lovely scree. No wind on summit, perfect day.

Nice hike up winter route. Snow cornice at top passable on north side.

Few snow patches on way up to SE face. Found easy class 2-3 route up.

Very windy and cold.

Couple snorts of Knob Creek and we were out of there.

Total RT time from Lake 3 ~ 5 hours.

14er #7 Beautiful day and a mellow climb. Went directly north from Army Pass and followed trail until it dead-ended into some boulders on SE face, avoiding the summit plateau. With a litte route-finding, was able to scramble on class 3-4 rock to the plateau. 12 hours car-to-car. Would have been faster if I didn't have a killer flu. Oh well.

Great day! Day trip from the Cottonwood Lakes Trail Head. 12 hours round trip. All was easy until the last two hours back to the trailhead. Sore feet. 21 miles does add up fast on the feet! LOL Recommended 1st 14er for anbody looking to try. Nunz
