Ascent Trip Report

Started from Cottonwood Lakes No. 3 at 11,300' at 8:00 AM. Reached top of Old Army Pass at 11,900' by 9:00 AM. Started up Mount Langley Trail and completed 3 of 4 stages on trail at 10:30 AM at 13,100'. Completed final stage 4 (a confusing route to summit) and reached summit at 11:30 AM at 14,026'. Relatively easy hike other than the confusing stage 4 which was not a clearly marked trail to the summit; required some Class II rock scrambling to reach summit. Took pictures, signed SPS register, spoke with 9 others at summit, had lunch and started return at 12:40 PM. Reach start of trail by 2:00 PM, then descended Old Army Pass and reached base camp at Cottonwood Lakes No. 3 by 3:00 PM. A great hike with a spectacular view - the weather was perfect without a cloud in the sky until we descended the summit.
