Trip Report
The Harding Route on Mt Conness and Pratt's Crack
Tuesday September 29, 2009 3:57pm
Two weeks back Chugach Man and I had a blast climbing the Southwest Face of Mount Conness via the Harding Route. On Sunday we headed to pine creek for some more offwidth action and sent Pratt's Crack.



On the approach from Saddlebag Lake.


Bringing way too much gear up Pratt's Crack

Yeah the rack was way overkill. You really only need a #5, a #6, a bunch of slings for chockstones and a few finger size pieces. You can push the #6 for a while until it gets too wide. Then you just squeeze in until it gets narrower at the top and you can use the #6 again.

The TC Pro's are pretty awesome. The stiffness worked well for the Heel-Toe Jams. I'll be doing a review of them soon on DreamInVertical. Some basic info is here.
