Ascent Trip Report

Started from Cottonwood Lakes Trailhead about 10:30, hiked up via New Army Pass, went too far to the left on the scramble up the rocks so had to traverse almost the whole summit plateau, took a more direct route down and then climbed Cirque Peak. Got to the summit there about 7:00 pm and then dropped down to the PCT to camp by an unfortunately dry lake. After hiking some on the PCT, camped at Chicken Spring Lake the 2nd night, very delightful!

This was a 3 day trip and in order to save battery power on my tablet I didn't record the track after the summit of Langley.
