The Edelrid Huascaran is a minimalist harness that doesn’t skimp on security. It has a beefy belay loop and a padded webbing waist that provides just enough comfort for long, light-n-fast missions. The harness is ultralight and packable, yet has decent gear loops and adjustment buckles. The leg loops have side buckles so you can put it on and take if off without removing your skis or crampons. They are made with a breathable mesh so you won’t overheat in spring. The Huascaran is a great harness for glacier travel and technical alpine ascents and descents.
