Old Army Pass  Sucess!

Sleeping down in Bishop the night before the hike after a few weeks at sea level was a mistake I should have known to avoid. I easily cruised up to the top of Old Army Pass from the parking lot at Horsehoe Meadows in just over 3.25 hours, but suffered from the lack of aclimitization to altitude the rest of the way and took about 3.5 painful hours to get from the top of the pass to the summmit of Langley. Toward the end I was resting for a minute every 10 steps and almost turned back due to safety concerns/bad AMS since I was alone other than my 2 dogs. I've never hiked so slowly in my life! 12 hours from car to car was longer than I had planned for, but I had everything I needed. I caught some small snowflakes at the summit. The partly cloudy day made for interesting photos, but luckily no lightning other than over in the White Mountains and beyond.

Old Army - 5th anniversary hike  Sucess!

Hiked in on Saturday and camped at Lake 4. Very peaceful night; not a breeze! Unfortunately, I only slept 2-3 hours. Took off at 7:15am and made the summit about 4 hours later. Had the whole mountain to ourselves; most people only started hours later. Fun mountain! Felt good all day; trail out with our packs I was kinda dragging though. Oh yeah, it was our (Chrissy and I) 5th anniversary; so that was kinda fun :)

3rd times a charm  Sucess!

Took 3 tries, but I finally got it. An easy 14'er but not when you are an idiot like I was back then.

A little face time  Sucess!

Not wanting to slog up the sandy side, we opted for the east face scramble. Bouldering and chutes on this route offered a little challenge, but not to dangerous for the father of a young family in our group. Great views Easy walk.

long Day on the East Ridge  Sucess!

Our day didn't start too well when we parked about 1.5 miles below the trailhead. To avoid our mistake I'd highly recommend taking Granite View drive to the trailhead rather than the road at the end of Tuttle Creek campground. Once we got to the trailhead we followed the trail to where it crosses a bridge over the creek. From there we turned left and scrambled a thousand vertical feet up some sand, snow and rock to gain the ridge. Once on the ridge we climbed over thousands of feet of really deep sun cups. After about 8 hours of clmbing we topped out to great views of Whitney and Lone Pine Peak. We descended the huge NE Couilor instead of the East Ridge and made it back to the car 12.5 hours after our start.

Long, Long day  Sucess!

Had no permit, so we did it as a long day hike. It took 13hrs and almost got struck by lightning on the summit. If you hear a wizzing noise when you hold up your arms, get down quick!!!

Shred the NE Couloir  Sucess!

Overnight trip with CMC, good times and great weather. Snow in the couloir was perfect for descent at ~9:45, but I opted to summit and descended at 11 in wet conditions. The turns were still worth it, even in slush.
