He has it correct, that threw me as well but if you look at google terrain and the way the peaks align from Baldy it makes sense. Your looking at Olancha in a Northeasterly direction and Olancha is the closest of the three. So if your driving up 395 once you are around Olancha your change your heading to northwest so Langley and Whitney would align slighly left of Olancha.
Ok, that's what I figured. So, basically Olancha and Langley are (south)east of Whitney, which is the only way this would work.
