Description 

From the Easy Dick belay below the Whale's Head, down-climb to the thin horizontal that cuts across to the snout. Plug those TCU's as you make the extremely airy traverse, trying to keep those feet pasted. Fight the sea-sickness and don't lose your lunch. Once on the nose, make a strenuous pull onto the blank slab and crawl up to the anchor of Moby Dick.
