Captain Ahab V2 in the early 2000's

Private Property Climb Only When Open to Climbing MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Right of Minky Mantle is a large foothold to start on and undercling the roof. Stand up and reach high to pock seams. Smear on the blank section to snatch good holds in the seams. It is possible to top out slightly right or left. This is one of my favorite of the grade at the Stables, an area stacked with classic V2's.

Location 

The right most of the three intermediate mantel problems (Captain Ahab, Minky's Mantle and Beluga Blues) on the downhill side of the Humpback boulder. This is the first problem left of the start to Moby's Dick.

Protection 

A pad or two is nice to have.
