Tug up sinker, spaced pockets on the clean, just-past-vertical face until the 2nd bolt, where the line begins a steady diagonal to the right. Carefully pick your sequences and holds to find the easiest path onward, there are several tempting sucker pockets, and the general goal is to stay somewhat low on this traverse. If you successfully navigate this thinner section, juggy pockets at the 4th bolt will allow a good shake before a final couple of moves wrap up the steep face and you rollover onto the easier slab for two more bolts to a small ledge with anchors. The anchors were placed high to facilitate cleaning the route. This is a good, albeit short, power route on very nice rock.

The Moskstraumen was the whirlpool which consumed Captain Nemo and the Nautilus at the end of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.


On the up-canyon (west) face of the mega-block (the Nautilus) detached from the main canyon wall and just above the new trail, a couple of hundred yards before the Shipyard proper is reached. The trail passes directly beneath the downhill aspect of the Nautilus. There is a belay ledge on the steep hillside beneath the route.


6 bolts to chain/shut anchor.
