A Very Powerful Whale Runs To Heaven

Bolts Are Failing! MORE INFO >>>


Start up the obvious inset crack left of the Moby Dick ledges. Jam and stem up this then step right along a flake to a stance. Pull through this slight bulge on enormous holds to just below the thin-hand crack splitting a minor roof. Grab the lip of the ledge and pull over. Continue left along the crack into the dark, shallow dihedral. Balance up this to a horizontal. Finish up the final thin crack with face holds to the Easy Dick ledge.
