Description 

Low Horn 3 is barely more than a bump on the side of Low Horn 2 (interestingly, most of the four summits of Low Horn 5 seem to be more significant than Low Horn 3). It appears that the north face would go direct, but the easiest route is East Ridge.


Getting There 

Easiest way to get to Low Horn #3 is by descending the south face of Low Horn #2. However, one can easily climb the east gully (low 5th).

There is a southerly rap anchor consisting of one tiny nut, an old piton, and a slung block.

WARNING: There is a large balanced block just left of the focal point of the rap anchor. I would have trundled it, but my partner was already on rap... and it scared the bejesus out of me when I noticed how loose it was.

Featured Route For Low Horn 3
Marta Reece leading up the east gully between Low Horns 2 and 3.  She chose the tunnel option (under the large chock stone), but with packs on, it was a bit of a squirm for me.

2-3 Saddle 5.2 3 8 II 8 D 2c  NM : Organ Mountains : ... : Low Horn 3
This route is basically a technical section of an approach to the saddle between Low Horns 2 and 3. It's an easy climbing up a narrow corner to the saddle. We did it under the chock stone, which turned out to be a bit of a squeeze for the follower with a pack. It probably should not be combined with East Ridge into a single pitch due to sharp changes of the direction of climbing....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
