Description 

Low Horn 3 is barely more than a bump on the side of Low Horn 2 (interestingly, most of the four summits of Low Horn 5 seem to be more significant than Low Horn 3). It appears that the north face would go direct, but the easiest route is East Ridge.


Getting There 

Easiest way to get to Low Horn #3 is by descending the south face of Low Horn #2. However, one can easily climb the east gully (low 5th).

There is a southerly rap anchor consisting of one tiny nut, an old piton, and a slung block.

WARNING: There is a large balanced block just left of the focal point of the rap anchor. I would have trundled it, but my partner was already on rap... and it scared the bejesus out of me when I noticed how loose it was.

Traverse left (east) to where a short steep section takes you to the ridge line. Follow the ridge as it becomes a narrow and exposed, but walkable, route to the top. The drop on each side is quite sharp, and sort of interesting....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
