“A short, but very steep, spur trail branching north from Harris Shelter.”— Kristen McGlynn
From Harris Saddle, cross the small gully and start heading up. The climb starts in earnest with a couple switchbacks to ease the elevation gain, but don't expect the going to get any easier. Watch your footing on a few washed out sections as the trail become more exposed as you climb.
The views of the Hollyford Valley are truly stupendous on a clear day, and you'll want to take plenty of time up top to catch your breath and take in the scenery before heading back down.
