eggheadsherpaRoute Climbed: Old Army Pass/ New Army Pass  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2006


Nice hike through the meadows and by the lakes. Went up NAP, down OAP, I personally think NAP is better, but they're close. Managed to find a little class 3 scrambling by climbing straight up the summit block.

Got to trailhead at 9:30am, jammed up to last lake, dropped our gear, started up about 1pm and back at camp around 7pm. Then decided to hike out. So we inadvertantly day hiked Langley.

Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2006


Had hiked Sonora Peak in the morning, and driven the 2.5 hours to Horseshoe Meadows and started my hike to Cottonwood Lakes at 5:30pm. Was totally spent when I crashed at 8:30pm at Lake #3, and didn't have the mojo in the morning to get up and climb the 3000 feet up Old Army Pass and up to the peak. Spent the day with a couple fisherman fishing Golden Trout and hiked back out to Horseshoe Meadow.

Snowpack was light, didn't look like any ice equipment would be necessary to get up the pass. Talked briefly with a few groups coming up from the meadows to do Langley.

The first 6.5 miles to the last lake at the bottom of Old Army Pass are nearly flat (about 1600ft gain). The pass itself isn't too much work, but the last 4 miles or so are easy to underestimate. Overall, great hike.

For a first timer, it is difficult to make out the trail between New Army Pass and the first ridge. Wonderful hike though.

Camped at Long Lake. Some snow/ice at the top of the pass but got around it ok without any gear. Opted for the class 3-4 summit approach for fun!

Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2006


We began hiking from the top of New Army pass towards Mt. Langley at around 2pm. It was a very long hike to the top and we had to climb some of the class 3 route. The view from the top was spectacular and it was completely clear. It was very windy and cold on the way down and we didn't get to camp at Soldier Lake until 9:30 that night.

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.

old5tenRoute Climbed: NE Chute Date Climbed: Summer, mid-80s  Sucess!


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.

Dave Daly

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!
