Part mythical/magical bouldering beast; Part White Wall tradtastics. The White Narwhal is the unicorn of The Forks, and worth chasing. Be like H.M. and get "tormented by an itch for things remote."

Several sections of the climb are unprotected, the top runout being the most serious. Caution riding a beast with a magical horn.


The White Narwhal climbs the largest red and white streaked prow just left of New Kid on the Block and "that 5.11+". Look for steep seam, sea(able) from The Prow.
