Description [Suggest Change]

A long and winding slab climb for the adventurer. Called "Whale of a Tale", as this problem spans up and over the tail-like feature on the "Moby Dick" boulder. Fairly easy start, taking advantage of the thin horizontal crack that runs through the boulder. Once feet are planted in this crack, it is a straight shot to the top smearing and scrambling for the send.

Location [Suggest Change]

Located on the far right side of the Moby Dick boulder in "The Moonscape" area of Fair Island, Newfoundland.

Protection [Suggest Change]

1 to 2 pads and a spot at the bottom.
