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.
Placement of bolts/fixed anchors is prohibited in Wilderness Study Areas Details

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.
