There are several peaks and subpeaks along the ridge leading up to Mount Langley. This is the highest HP along the edge of all of the cirque bowls in the Cottonwood Lakes area (the only one that exceeds 13,000 feet) and stands along the NW edge of the cliffs overlooking the highest glacial lake just above the Cottonwood Lakes. The col is the saddle between the scramble trail leading up the SE approach to Langley and is only about 130 feet below the HP. Elevations interpolated from USGS contours in meters.
