This topic has been discussed before, but i want to consolidate opinions.
Planning to hike Mt. Langley starting on Friday Oct. 7th. What is the SP consensus on the better route up: New or Old Army Pass? The research i've done indicates that Old is more direct, more scenic but unmaintained, while New is maintained. I am assuming there is little to no snow left on either route. Which do ya'll think is better?
Also, my research into the weather for early October indicates that it could be 70 and perfectly sunny or 30, windy and snowing. Early Oct. is the beginning of the transition into autumn and the weather could go either way. Any thoughts on early October weather in the Southern High Sierra?
