Round two and very recommendable  Sucess!

Failed via altitude sickness when I went through the JMT a month earlier. My very good friend Charybdis took me back to try it from this angle. A perfectly fuzzy little memory.

Day 1: Horsehoe Camp to New Army Pass to summit Langley to just short of Rock Creek.

Day 2: Guyout Pass, through Crabtree Meadows and Guitar Lake to a sandy tarn at 12,000'.

Day 3: Slowly summit then come out through the portal.

Day 4: Rest and stretch (on white mountain peak).
