Sit start with hands matched on the mini-shelf. From there, make a big pull up to a right hand edge (crux), match a left next to it, then gain the right hand sidepull, get the feet up to the start hold, and finish straight up the face on the remaining edges to reach an easy topout.


It climbs the far northern section of Moby Dick's east face.


A pad or two should do it, the landing is perfect.

There really isn't a sit start available, so no way this is a V3. I've rated it a V2, but that might be generous. The first move is the crux, perhaps the match on the thin long crimp as the second move. Great problem, though. Apr 24, 2016

Matt had this one listed as a V1. I wasn't sure if this was graded for a sit or stand start. For the stand, I'd agree with the V1, but I felt like the sit start warranted a higher grade. Sep 4, 2014
