Description

This is probably the easiest way to summit Low Horn 2 from the north and is listed here mostly as a reference for anyone trying to do a north to south traverse of the Organ Mountains as quickly as possible. Start from below the obvious off-width/chimney/gully on the north face of Low Horn 2. Climb up a bit, take a look at the North Face route which goes up the aforementioned gully thing, realize it's totally doable, but be lazier and continue WSW up the easy ramp you're on. Make an all-hands move on bomber holds (hands in wide crack) out onto the NW face with a small tree available for a right foot-hold if you're scared or mean enough to step on it. A few more easy moves past there and a walk to the left and you're on the top. Several trad anchor opportunity exists.

Protection

I think I placed two or three cams on this route, and when I did, it mostly because I had no idea what was ahead of me. A single medium or large cam can protect the crux move. Several Camalot C4 #2-3 or equivalent are useful for making a feet level trad anchor just below the summit (walk up around the corner from here).

You can get down by rapping off the north. Bring new webbing, etc, as there are no bolted anchors here.
