BETA PHOTO: Take obvious crack to ledge, continue up dihedral ...


Stunning SW crack that has probably been ogled by every climber that hiked to Harney. Start in wide crack that quickly pinches to fingers. Crux is getting through the gold rock to the big ledge. Stays real to the end. Rock is pretty good overall, some hollow spots and small friable flakes keeps things exciting.


Double rack BD .4 - #3

Needles stlye rap, 60m rope (south side is taller!)
