Description

From Low Horn #4, the South Face of #3 looks steep and imposing. Once at the 3+4 saddle, you will see that the South Face is less than vertical with many different lines.

From the saddle, head up the diagonal cracks to a headwall. The headwall is easier than it looks. Do a couple of 5.6 moves on good rock to surmount it, then head up and right around bushes and some cacti following your nose to the summit.

To descend, rap the the South face.

Location

Between Horns #3 and #4, maybe best approached by traversing other horns and rapping to the saddle.

Protection

A few finger to hand-sized cams or some nuts should suffice.

As always in the Organs, bring new webbing and quicklinks or leaver-biners to replace whatever aging, sun-beat tat you find for anchors and raps.
