Description

Harpoon ascends a perfect, vertical sandstone face via microedges.

Stand start with an incut, hortizontal left hand edge, and a triangular, right hand pinch-sidepull. From there, work the feet up on edges, gain a thin horizontal edge, paste a high foot, then hit the sloping lip (crux), and top it out.

Understanding the horizontal rail before the lip is crucial. It is small, but some parts of it are ever-so-slightly better than others.

Location

It ascends the west face of Moby Dick.

Protection

A pair of pads will do, the immediate landing is perfect, there are however some rocks behind the problem.

Such an improbable looking problem! I could barely see a hold upon first inspection. Sick problem, Matt! Feb 17, 2014
