Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionThis area can be thought of as analogous to the Gunks in that the Nears have a quite different "feel" than the Trapps. Likewise, Safe Harbor North has a different feel than South.
Same weather and facing as Safe Harbor south.
The routes tend to be more spread out.
Also the routes are steeper.
The grades are a little more 'gunks like also, which is totally fine. #keepnorthstiff
On sunny days there are many hikers and bikers on the trail.
Recommended gear: 60m rope. 10 20cm draws, 3 "alpine" draws and 2 shorter sport draws.
There are also a few mixed/trad lines.
