Once on the ridgeline I cruised up to the south east nose of Mt Langley and started up the ridge. Due to the large snow fields and my twisted route finding skills I ended up on the eastern face. Although most of it was moving through large 10ft diameter boulders there were a few surprising 5th class moves. About half way through the section I caught up to a couple that I had seen a 1/2 hour before. This reassuring, at least I wasn't completely off route. I summited by 12pm and spent an hour or so on the summit enjoying the views. I came back down the gentler western side and made it back to camp a couple of hours later.
The only mistake that I made on this trip was not to bring enough water. I brought about 1 liter in a platipus because I didn't want to fend off the mosquitoes while pumping water in the morning. I finished the water while eating lunch on the summit and was parched by the time I got back to camp. Because it only took me 3.5hrs to go up and 2hrs to come back down the mistake didn't have any serious consequences but did make the last stretch of the hike a little draining. Overall, it was a beautiful day with excellent views.
