Small gear on the face going up through the second...

Description 

Climb into gully at the start of Mr. October Two and go right at the spectacular handcrack that slants to the right and set up belay under the roof 5.8 170ft. Traverse left ten feet to a sweet hand and finger crack and pull roof to the left. Go up huge chimney finding nice small gear in the face until you can place a 5 camalot in the large crack . Continue up the crack to set up a belay on a nice ledge 5.8 140ft. On pitch three traverse right place gear and then down climb10 feet and traverse around the corner past two vertical cracks that provide good hand jams to access the large chimney section to the right. climb up walking your gear for 20ft to protect the second on the traverse. Continue up the chimney placing small gear in the back of the chimney until you get to a tight squeeze. At this pint place a 3/4 inch piece down climb five fee and traverse out to the edge and climb the arête till past the squeeze. Continue up the chimney on easier climbing to the top 5.9 190ft.

Location 

Climb to the top of Harney Peak and then traverse down 700ft of vertical down the south facing wall to the biggest buttress on Harney Peak.

Protection 

Double rack to a five and a six. Could probably get by without the 6.
