Route Climbed: Army Pass/Normal Route Date Climbed: June 25, 2005  Sucess!

Part of a three day backpacking trip with Ol' Walsher. Left the Horseshoe Meadow Trailhead and headed up over Cottonwood Pass to the PCT and down to Soldier Lake. The next day we hiked up the back (west) side of the New Army Pass Trail and cut over to Old Army Pass and picked up the trail to the summit. Managed to (slowly) drop down Old Army Pass with our ice axes and camped at Cottonwood Lake #5.

Route Climbed: New Army (up), Old Army (down) Date Climbed: June, 2002  Sucess!

My first 14'er. I remember a short exposed section coming down Old Army Pass, but much better than heading up and over to descend the New Army Pass. A friendly group setup at the base of Old Army Pass invited us to stay for a wine and cheese happy hour, much appreciated after a long day. A great trip.

Route Climbed: Old Army Pass Date Climbed: Early Season (may?), 1978  Sucess!

Lots of good hard neve on Old Army, we went up central chute with ice axe and crampons and had to tunnel thru the cornice at the top, Scary after we saw from above the huge crack between cornice and the snowfield above. The rest was an enjoyable snow slog to great views at the summit.

In August Pat Brenan and I climbed on the cliffs north of Cottonwood Lake #4.

We topped out on the plateau south of Mt Langly and decended down old army pass. II 5.8 ***

I day solo effort; very long day after getting confused around the lakes and taking the chute just north of Old Army and climbing quite a ways before realizing it, reversing and correcting; estimate 24mi. RT.

Route Climbed: Army Pass (South Slope) Date Climbed: Oct 3, 2004  Sucess!

Enjoyable dayhike out of Horseshoe Meadow. The Cottonwood Lakes area is beautiful. The climb from Army Pass wasn't as sandy as I'd feared, and the scrambling up to the summit plateau was more interesting than I expected too.

Route Climbed: Normal Date Climbed: May 2004  Sucess!

Beautiful area. Climbed the chute next to New Army Pass by chopping foot and handholds in the snow (no crampons). After heading back from the summit, we descended the west side of the pass, met up with the PCT, and took Cottonwood Pass back to the car. A memorable trip.

Route Climbed: Old Army Pass Date Climbed: October 2, 2004  Sucess!

A much better dayhike than I'd expected. Very scenic. I was racing the weather the entire way and reached the summit just as the clouds converged - no view.

Route Climbed: Southern Scramble Date Climbed: September 15, 2004  Sucess!

Completed a day-hike starting from Long Lake over New Army Pass starting at 8.30am. Found the northern path to the base of Langely easily and trudged up the base to the rock scramble which was ascended without trouble. Worked our way east to the summit (12.30p.m.) where a nice couple were exiting for the descent. My friend arrived 30 minutes lates on the summit. Took pictures and marvled and the drop-off on the Northern and Eastern portions of the mountain. The weather cooperated entirely. It was sunny, mild in temperature, and cloudless. We made it back to our tent after 3 hours of descent. We were exhausted but happy to have summited our first 14k peak.

Route Climbed: Old Army Pass Date Climbed: August 20th, 2003  Sucess!

Left from 5th lake of the Cottonwood Lakes, had great weather, and a great climb. A good peak for anyone looking to get some elevation without too much exposure.
