Huascaran Harness

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.

  • Dual construction with soft edging and spacer structure
  • Ultrasonically welded webbing ends
  • Classic Mono buckle
  • Leg loop buckles
  • Two flexible gear loops, two ice screw clip attachment points

great light alpine harness

    the harness's gear loops work well in conjunction with a pack that also has gear loops. it fits under a pack very well, and I've managed a couple hanging belays in it without too much discomfort.

    Light, Comfortable and Easy to Use

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've used this harness several times for glacier travel and technical climbing. The pros: light, compact, comfortable and the leg loop buckles make it easy to get on and off. The only con: the gear loops. First of all, if you're planning on using this for big multipitch climbs, the two small gear loops will be insufficient (to be fair, I don't think it was intended for big gear climbs). The worst part about the gear loops, however, is how they are placed at the front of the harness and taper forward. When I am climbing everything on the loops is pushed to the front of my legs. I'm continually having to push things out of my way, and if you have a picket or two, they'll get tangled up in your tool leashes. Edelrid could easily solve this problem by placing the gear loops a little farther back on the harness and giving them a more traditional loop design. I am going to add my own gear loops a little farther back on the harness to solve this problem.

    Hi Randy,
    I like your idea about adding gear loops. I’m curious how you’ll do it Sew them in? Will you use loops off an old harness? Just ordered this harness, and it seems like this is the only con...

    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.

    Thanks for the review Sean! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

    How to Measure:
    For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
