Description

We climbed a large chimney for two very long pitched that gets you on the shoulder of the west side of Elk Horn Peak. We then did a couple of other pitches and with a bunch of 3rd class climbing with some short sections of 5th class to the top of Elkhorn Peak. The rock on the first two pitches was stellar and you can simul rappel off the shoulder after that, but for full adventure potential climb to the summit for some great views.

Location

Trail 8 to Trail 9 toward Harney Peak and then hike off the trail toward Elkhorn once the trail surmounts the first hill. Climb is on the far right side of Elkhorn as seen from the trail.

Protection

Rack to a 6 is helpful and allows you to not have to run it out much.
