Edelrid's Huascaran Harness has its mind on minimalism for ultralight mountaineers crossing crevasses, traversing glaciers, and rappelling icefalls. Its dual construction combines soft edges with spacer structures for a surprisingly comfortable feel despite its ultralight weight of eight ounces. Edelrid ultrasonically welded the webbing's ends so you can thread through the classic Mono buckle with ease. Both adjustable leg loops separate so you can put the harness on without taking crampons or skis off. This is the first harness to ever receive a Bluesign certification for Edelrid's sustainable production.

Eldrid Huascaran, great harness
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
After trying three different types of mountaineering/ high alt harnesses, I opted for the Eldrid Huascaran. The harness is comfortable, light, functional and affordable. I used it when we climbed Baker, Shuksan, Rainier in the Cascades and ski mountaineering in Colorado. I was impressed how well it did while doing crevasse rescue training and how comfortable it was under my waist belt while carrying a 50 ld pack up several thousand feet a day. Overall this is a great harness and I look forward to using it on my mountaineering trip to Bolivia this summer.
