Description

At the very top of the main tier you can find this obvious left-leaning crack that climbs into an alcove. Climb the cracks, through the thin crux up to a nice horizontal and then stand up into an alcove. Exiting the alcove you will find coldshut anchors.

Protection

A couple small cams for the bottom and then a few hand-sized pieces for the top.

Definitely a Ship Rock classic. If done from the ledge on the right, the grade is quite soft, however taking the climb direct from the ground makes the grade feel more like 10a and gives you another body length or more of the great movement this climb offers! Jun 17, 2012

Very Rad Climb! Definitely a must do at ship, offering very cool features and bomber protection ( minus the first couple moves). I think its soft for its grade, so if you are just getting into 10's Harpoon is a fantastic choice! Short and Sweet! Oct 4, 2011

The comment in the guidebook is "all too short," and I must agree. Every time I do this route, I wish that the movement was a hundred feet longer.

Just to reiterate, do not access the top of this, or any climb at Ship Rock, by any another other means than leading the route. May 28, 2011

DO NOT walk to the top of Harpoon/Anguish. As of 3/7/07, the NPS is cracking down on the closure of the clifftop of Shiprock. Everything above Anguish/Harpoon is off-limits, and all descents of the main tier must utilize the Boardwalk rappel. Go to carolinaclimbers.org for more info. Mar 27, 2007
