This is an alternative to the first pitch of Moby Dick.

Harpoon Direct is the name I gave it for now, but I'm sure someone has done it before and there is another name for it. If this is the case, please let me know and I will gladly change it to the proper name

Ascend the cracks on the left and traverse right a little bit upon reaching the roof. Pull the roof towards the right side and continue diagonally to the right and finish at the same tree belay as P2 of Moby Dick


Starts left and up the gully from the start of Moby Dick at a couple cracks on in a sort of right facing corner to a roof.

This route still has a lot of crumbly stuff on it, and one flexing flake near the top. I spent 15 minutes under the roof, trying to figure out how to pull it from the right side, like the description says. Gave up and just pulled it from the left, which is very straightforward. Above the roof, you'll be going 15-20 feet between placements, on 5.7 face/slab. Jan 14, 2018
