No trip to The Gorge of Despair is complete without bagging Mt. Harrington via it's North Ridge on the way in or out. For any skilled rock climber this route is a short, exciting solo. Guidebooks give the climb a grade of class III, I would say that it is certainly class IV.
Follow the approach as described on the Gorge of Despair page. From near the crest of Harrington Pass head left to get on the ridge.
The 4th class rating is pretty stiff. A fun easy solo for an experienced climber, the route is very exposed and an inexperienced person might like a rope. The featured rock offers plentiful opportunities for protection and anchors.
