Description:

A wonderful multi pitch. Only one move of .8 followed by hundreds of feet of easier climbing. Freehanging rappel. Be very careful throwing your ropes down on the rappel. There is a nasty flake down the right edge/corner that will eat up your rope if the wind is blowing.

Followed Peter. Committing for the leader, I suppose, if leading at their limit. With only 1 pitch at 5.8, though, I don't get how the route earned it's Stars Status... Not that it wasn't fun, of course, and the hike in is quite nice. All in all, pleasant experience.

I threw the rap rope, and it was a windy day.... Yes, the flake bit down - on my partners first-time ever used double ropes, too. Yikes! I had to batman over towards the snag and then let loose and try to whip the rope loose. The god's must have taken pity, for the rope seemed to release itself after three attempts. Phew!!!!

4 out of 5 stars Moby Dick

Climbed last pitch in 45 mph wind gusts. Though the fifth pitch is an easy 5.7, it is very exposed and the wind made it quite heady! Leader could not find bolted anchors on fifth pitch and had to rig one up with pro. It can be done in 3 pitches with half ropes.
