1st Sierra 14'er Dayhike  Sucess!

Nice Day. Contemplated descending Old Army but thought the better of it.
No regrets. Others did r/t Old Army though.

Old Army Pass  Sucess!

Dayhiked Langley via Old Army Pass with commando tang in approx 13 hrs. Our third, Aj, developed blisters on Gibbs the day before so he kept the tent after our 3:45am departure. Originally, we planned on climbing via New Army Pass, but changed our minds mid-way. The end of the pass was covered with snow so we headed up an easy class three chute. The 6hr drive home to the bay area was pure pain.

Up and down pass north of Old Army Pass  Sucess!

Camped on moraine above the fifth Cottonwood Lake then headed up the pass north of Old Army Pass in the morning. Windy up top, but great weather relative to the past couple of weeks. Found the benchmark but no register. Mosquitoes starting to come out around the meadows and marshes.

Tuttle Creek/E.Ridge

Nice day. Camped on the ridge at 12,000'. Got a leisurely start and summited by noon. Had first encounter with Bighorns in the Sierra. Saw a herd of 12 or more.

NE Couloir  Sucess!

Dayhiked Langley's NE Couloir with Forjan & Seano. The weather was very warm below but chilly up top with some snow flurries at the summit. The snowshoes were a definite must have and the glissade down the couloir was a blast. Took us around 12 hours roundtrip.

First Ascent of "The S-Wall", III-IV 5.9 with Doug Robinson  Sucess!

This spectacular route hidden in plain view is right up the obvious S-Shaped Wall as you look at Mount Langley from Cottonwood Lakes. Just look straight down the middle of the Profile photo on the Mount Langley home page on SummitPost. The S Shape will jump at you.

via New Army Pass snow field  Sucess!

We made the summit on the way to Whitney. The hardest part was managing the heavy packed snowfield over New Army Pass. Actually needed to break out the snow gear I planned to only need at Trail Crest were snow covered most of the switchbacks top to bottom meaning potentially a 2,000 slide. Very nice peak with a great view! My second ascent.

Cottonwood/Langley Trip  Sucess!

Headed into the Cottonwoods Lakes Basin with my brother for a few days. Camped at the south end of the South Forks Lakes. Woke up early on Day 2, climbed over to the Cottonwood Lakes, up over Old Army Pass, and trudged the long trek of the south slope to the summit of Langley. Got some good bouldering in and the views were great. I will definitely be heading back and trying to get back into Miter Basin and some of the other peaks in the area.

Summer day trip  Sucess!

Friend and I drove in from the Bay Area hoping to get an overnight permit, but all were taken. Ended up just crashing in the car for a couple hours at the Horseshoe Meadows trailhead, then day hiked the peak starting before sunrise. Scrambled directly up the boulders from the south.

Mount Langley Success  Sucess!

A friend (from Davis, CA)and I summitted Langley under clear skies. We camped at Horseshoe Meadow and did the entire hike in one day. Some class 3 climbing is required to attain the summit plateau. The view from the top is spectacular!! While hiking up Army Pass we encountered a hiker from Eastern Europe that had fallen and dislocated his right shoulder. He was attempting to climb a steep snowfield in the Pass without an ice ax or crampons. He had almost made the top of the Pass, but slipped and fell several hundred feet. Several other hikers helped him pack up his camping equipment and escorted him to the Cottonwood Lakes trailhead. We carried out his backpack and tent. On our way out we ran into another hiker that told us that someone had fallen and severly injured themselves a few weeks before on the Army Pass trail.

Re: Mount Langley Success

Funny, I just read your climber's log entry. I signed this same log on Jun 22, 2002 after my summit of Langley. I helped the same fallen hiker that day all they way out and actully made sure he made it to the emergency room in Lone Pine that afternoon. It's been a long time, but I actully think I remember talking to you guys on or near the summit. I didn't see the hiker fall...but I had seen him going up the snow field and had a real bad feeling about him....then I remember how bad I felt when you guys told me that someone had fallen.

Old Army Pass  Sucess!

Hiked in on Saturday. According to those hiking out, we apparently just missed some rather unpleasant weather, but the rest of the weekend had great weather (despite the forecast). We camped over by Lake 5 and headed up Old Army Pass on Sunday, reaching the summit (from camp) in a leisurely 4 hours.
