MoapaPkRe: Old Army Pass


You consume a lot of energy hauling a 35-lb pack to a campsite. There is much to be said for a decent night's sleep in a Lone Pine motel, followed by an early drive to the trailhead and a fresh start!

Nice hike. 8:45 car to car. Took it slow going up as I was a bit tired from Russell the day before.

Great hike with outdoorsclub.org, we summited via the old army pass, took the New Army pass down and detoured via the South Fork Lakes and followed the south fork creek back to the trail. Beautiful weather! Great Hike! My 4th 14'er.

Day hiked from Cottonwood Lakes trailhead. Finally made it after being stymied on prior atempts by snowed-over passes and altitude probs. Great views.

Went up via New Army Pass. Came down via Old Army Pass which was trecherous with snow along the trail. Otherwise, very uneventful.

MoapaPkOA Pass then E Ridge
Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2006


Day-hiked twice from Horseshoe parking lot; GPS showed 20.3 miles RT, > 5000' elevation gain (there are a lot of subtle ups and downs on way). Four members of party came up >7000' via NE face from Tuttle Creek; two went out over Cirque Peak and down N A Pass. Absolutely gorgeous weather (well, a bit windy).

Once I went up by the east ridge, which is nominally 3rd class; and once by traditional southern route, class 2 at most.

Day-hiked up Old Army Pass the day before but got stuck on the rocks below the summit too late in the afternoon, so went back down and camped beside the parking lot. Went up New Army Pass the next morning and slogged up the steep sand and rocks to the moonscape up top. Somewhere along the way, I lost my favorite black tank top--but the view from the summit was worth it.

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.

cjrandallWasted at Cottonwood Lakes
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!

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.
