Went up the Whitney Trail on Friday, camped at crowded Trail camp. The other day got up the switchbacks, made a little side trip to Mt. Muir, short fun climb! Continued following the trail up Whitney summit, spent few hours chatting with people (there were many), than climbed down the Mountaineers Route to Iceberg Lake and spent another windy night there. Didn't get much sleep as the wind blew instantly to my face through my bivy... Another morning I stared late ,9:30, and headed up the Iceberg Col and then traversed to Russel's South Face, which was a long scramble up the face, than a little class 3 up to the ridge. I took the easier Right Side variation. After hanging around summit with 2 guys who climbed Fishhook Arete, climbed down, packed all my stuff and followed the North Folk Creek Trail down to the portal. I must say it is much easier to do so if there is snow... My knees were killing me... That night I drove my car to Cottonwood Lakes trail head, camped there and in the morning started early for the Mt. Langley never ending day hike... Took me 9.5 hours round trip but it was worth it. Beautiful area at Cottonwood Lakes...
Met so many great people on this trip that I have talked to and spent some time with and that was certainly the most rewarding feeling of the whole trip...

Camped at Cottonwood 3 and to the top via Old Army. Had the top to myself for about a half hour. Enjoyed the giant steps down the sandy slopes (closest I've been to the Moon).

A fun and scenic hike. Camped at High Lake. Lost the trail just beyond the pass but pushed toward the summit and eventually met back up with it. Quite windy but fantastic views from the summit!

From Cirque Lake we went up New Army, lost the trail, and considerable elevation, but we figured it out and summited. All but two of our 14 person group made it. My 1st real mountain, as I was 14 at the time. Good times.

We camped at Horseshoe Meadows (elevation about 10,000 feet), woke up early, and headed up the trail to Cottonwood Lakes at 6:30 a.m. The six-mile hike to Cottonwood Lakes went pretty fast. From the lakes there's a great view of Langley. The tougher part of the hike was between Cottonwood Lakes and the peak. From the last lake, I hiked up a rough trail to Old Army Pass. My hiking partner took a more direct Class 3 route, and we met at the top of the pass.

The final approach to the peak was a long, tough scree slope. It took a while to get to peak, but I made it up there by around 12:30 p.m. The weather was great all day long, so we took our time coming down.

Dayhiked. First time there was too much snow. Second time, not a problem just keep climbing up that sand dune.

Interesting trip. I went with a client who’d "done it before" and ended up having to hold his hand. We also picked-up two rookies from Tennessee at the trailhead. It killed me to see nice third class chutes and not be able to climb them because of my partners limited skills. A very pedestrian weekend, but still fun. I went back the next day and climbed the direct chute in Army Pass for fun.

My first California 14er. Came in through Cottonwood lakes, bivied just above the highest lake and hit the peak in the morning. There was one person on the summit when I got there - and I scared the crap out of him...by accident of course. This is a great first 14er.

It was a beautiful day and I met some nice hikers near the top. My best friend Caleb had ankle problem and couldn't make it. My watch freezed at 10:30am so I thought it was the longest hour ever.

Would have been nice to summit but friend got sick and we couldnt wait another day. Coming from the flatlands requires a good day to aclimate... well for me.

20 degree night at trailhead, left at 5am warmed up as the sun came out. Made the summit before the clouds rolled over the top. Great trip up Army Pass no snow left.
