"Good, tough/strenuous hike as it should be for any 14'er! Tstorms happened in the valley as i hit the top of the peak and adequately terrified me, but i kept going and peaked out. Quite a fun day hike." - kirbyhays, Jul 14, 2018
"My first fourteener. Finally. Day hike in perfect, mild weather. Not a cloud in the sky and only windy at the summit. Incredibly not assaulted by so much as a single insect. Plenty of water available before you start ascending out of New or Old Army Pass. Camped at the trailhead the night before and unfortunately didn't get nearly enough sleep due snoring and some chatter from nearby campers. I'm sure the elevation didn't help. The numbers do not do this one justice. On paper it's a milk run. In reality I was beaten down by the time my painful feet made it back to the trailhead. No" - JustinB, Jul 4, 2018
"We made it! Hiked to lake 3 and camped the first night. Made it to the summit the second day and camped again at lake 3. We had beautiful weather for the whole trip up and down. Summit day took us 11 hours. We struggled with the last mile or so before the summit (altitude and scree), but we made it...third 14er!!!" - DoyleWalton, Aug 14, 2017
"After a long 5 hours of thunderstorms in my trekking-pole-pitched 3 season lightweight tent the night before, woke up to beautiful, clear weather on Sunday. Went up New Army Pass and then followed the newly reconstructed/cairned NPS trail to the summit. Felt pretty good for 14000', maybe some Nepal acclimatization stuck around." - edg, Jun 14, 2015
"For my birthday some close friends of mine and the girlfriend joined me for a backpack to Muir lake. After a day of relaxation and acclimation at the lake on day 2 we made the climb up Old Army Pass. Along the way up w saw 22 big horn sheep and had a fun climb and fun time on the summit together. My 2nd time up here and peak #58 of my 100 in 2014 goal. From there my buddy and I climbed Cirque Peak and then went down New Army Pass for a naked swim in High Lake before returning to camp at Muir Lake." - 1-with-Nature, Aug 17, 2014
