Cirque Peak via Cirque Lakes? #58226 11/24/2020 1:17 AM
by BL1
During normal seasons (June / July), is Cirque Peak climbable from Cirque Lake? It looks like a stretch to climb Langley, descend to a campsite at Long Lake, and climb back up New Army Pass. Of course you could always summit both mountains in a day, but that is hard to do... Any input on this?

I've only ever summitted Cirque Peak from camping at Cirque Lake laugh so yes it's totally doable if you don't mind 3rd class scrambling.

From Cirque Lake, the route(s) is completely off trail - heading north then east into the bowl immediately north of the peak - then a fun scramble up to the summit. I've marked a rough path here for reference:

note that's a really rough approximation of the route I've taken - obviously terrain plays into the exact lines up/down the mountain.
