dvsanbtRoute Climbed: buttress to bypass old army pass, then cl 3 variation to summit Date Climbed: october 18, 2003  Sucess!

dvsanbt

solo dayhike from trailhead. the buttress to the east of old army pass required some routefinding to keep the difficulty level at class 3/4 level. as i topped out at the buttress, i saw two bighorn sheep at the plateau staring at me from a distance. then a sand slog for a while before hitting good class 3 buttress to the summit plateau. the wind was howling - thankfully the summit was not a ridge like on lot of other peaks.

Backpacked in to Cottonwood Lakes with my wife and headed up Old Army Pass at about 2:30PM. Hit the summit by 5:00PM. I think I was the last one up for the day. Returned to a sweet campsite East of Lake #4 by 6:30. A quick but beautiful summit. Look out for that North and East facing slope! WOW it must drop 2,000ft straight down!

Took my little sister (14) on her first peak with a summit register as training for Whitney. She dayhiked it like a pro! Tried a different route up the Cottonwood Lake #6 slope, and was pleasantly surprised - much faster and easier than that Old Army trail! Most of the elevation involves low-angle class 3 slabs. Early season climbs would have to conquer the cornice at the ridgeline. Perfect summer route! Got rained on the entire 2 hour walk back from Cottonwood Lakes Basin. Forget bears in the campground --- beware of noisy, annoying, card-playing tourists.

First of the California Fourteeers! We took the route on the south west face up a chute (Class 3) to the top. Awesome hike.

Had a base camp at Muir Lake, hiked pasing the Old Army Pass to the SE slope. Clombed it to the ridge, hiked on the snow to the base of the summit ridge. Climbed some class 3 snow chute and riched the summit. ON the way back had the worst ever problems with altitude.

Bagged this peak for the second time today. Awesome views! The snow at new army pass is of little concern as steps have been kicked into it.

Although the books say that Mount Langley is quite easy....I found it harder than Mount Whitney. The last 1,500 feet of elevation is quite loose and gravely. Trekking poles are of a great assistance. There is also a fair amount of route finding after New Army Pass too, since the trail is poorly marked. Nonetheless, it's still 14,000+ ft and worth every step.

For a first climb I would not recomnend this route. I was not so lucky and had a friend take me up knowing that I had no climbing expierence. I made it but hanging, totally exposed, was not my idea of having a good time. Though I have to say that i'm hooked on the whole backpacking & climbing adventure and i'm looking forward to climbing mt. whitney via the mountaineers route in september.

MishaRoute Climbed: Old Army Pass (snow chute in the center), Class 3 variation to the summit Date Climbed: June 14th, 2003  Sucess!

Misha

Set up a base camp between Cottonwood Lakes #4 and 5. Climbed via Old Army Pass straight up the snow chute in the center. It was a lot of fun - the slope in there (close to the pass) gets to about 50 degrees. Took the Class 3 variation to the summit between 13.2 and 14k feet, nice scramble! On the way back we got intimidated by the steepness and icy conditions of the snow chute below Old Army Pass, and descended a Class 4-5 rock variation instead. Aside from us, two more people summited that day. What a nice contrast to the crowds on Mt. Whitney :). All in all, great day and great mountain!

Late season basecamp between Cottonwood 4 and 5. Woke up and hit the trail around 7:30am the next morning. The lakes were partially frozen as temperatures dropped into the 20s and never got above the mid 40s. Took a little over 3 hours to summit, and less than 2.5 hours to get back to the lakes. One of the easiest 14ers.

Diggler

Did the approach to Langley (summited the next morning) the day after an exhausting (slept and 'acclimated' ~ 2 hours before going up) hike up White Mountain Peak. The weather and surroundings were beautiful, though. Passed some old English guys (who were in really good shape!) who'd camped at 11- or 12,000 ft, and were going along the Pacific Crest (or John Muir?) Trail. Had a wonderful, refreshing dip in the lakes below while descending.

A nice walk up. I think Old Army Pass is the way to go.

A nice climb with my friend Mike! We didn’t have the gear to deal with the cornices on the Army Passes, so we stayed at Chicken Spring Lake in Golden Trout Wilderness and hiked from the west.

Hiked with Richard Elder. Pretty good day hike with incredible scenery from the lakes basin on. About 11 hrs with a couple of those used for fishing the cottonwood lakes, brilliant goldies, bring a pole.

The Northern side of the mountain offers incredible selection of sharp aretes, buttresses and ridges. In the fall of 1999, Miguel Carmona and I climbed the "right hand" skyline arete, visible from Highway 395 at Lone Pine. The approach is via south fork of Tuttle Creek and Keyhole Wall. The route turned out to be 15 pitches long, with mostly 5.9 and easier climbing. Two pitches of 5.10 crack climbing. The route was just climbed second time in July 2002. Email me if you would like me to mail you a topo. There is detailed TR on SCMA site-www.rockclimbing.org, go to Gallery for pictures and Trip Reports for write up.

I finally did it! My first 14er! Although I bruised the first three toes on my left foot, the day was great! I could barely walk by the time I got to the Cottonwood Lakes trailhead.



Round trip was 10 hours exactly. Up via New Army Pass and came down Old Army Pass
