Captain Ahab V2 in the early 2000's

  • Governor Stable requires membership or a paid pass. The Circuit Area is currnetly closed to all climbing while access to the area is negotiated. Please respect the closed / no tresspassing signs posted near the pyramid. The rest of GS proper remains open to members and daypass holders. MORE INFO >>>
  • Areas on State Game Lands may face full hunting season closure starting in 2015 - please read and respond MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    Right of Minky Mantle is a large foothold to start on and undercling the roof. Stand up and reach high to pock seams. Smear on the blank section to snatch good holds in the seams. It is possible to top out slightly right or left. This is one of my favorite of the grade at the Stables, an area stacked with classic V2's.

    Location 

    The right most of the three intermediate mantel problems (Captain Ahab, Minky's Mantle and Beluga Blues) on the downhill side of the Humpback boulder. This is the first problem left of the start to Moby's Dick.

    Protection 

    A pad or two is nice to have.
