The southernmost California fourteener, with excellent views. Mount Langley provides one of the most straightforward ascents of a Sierra fourteener. Though a long hike, the elevation gain is only a bit over 3,600 feet.

We had a great hike! It took about 12hrs to complete the trail from the campground to the top. We got some light snow at the top and it rained most of the way back. It was about 7hr up and 4hr back. There is lots of loose gravel near the top and it sucks to walk up, but you can really haul @$!*% on the way down! The views were amazing and this place ranks high on beautiful places in the sierras. The hike is mellow on the knees because most is at a slant compared to stairs. We took the old army pass and its not bad at all. Just take your time and don't be stupid. It was pretty easy for a 14'er too. We adjusted to the altitude at about 9K' for 2 nights and 1 day. I'd say that the half dome or el cap hikes are harder than this one.
