Default Can I harvest the yeast from this dry hopped beer in primary??

It's been in primary the whole time, 1.070 og, 77 IBUS's and three ounces of dry hops. It's a different yeast I want to save and I have so much going on I forgot to rack to secondary. Is it possible to save this yeast or should I forget about it?

It's not ideal but would work as long as you did a good starter the next time. Might need a step up too. I prefer to keep yeast from lesser beers like pale ale, blonde, etc.
