Beached Whale – 5.12b


20m / 66ft, 9 bolts

Description:

*TOP 100* Stick-clip the first bolt and execute a gnarly boulder problem that leads to the roof. A wild left traverse using all form of trickery leads to a sneaky rest and a committing finish. It's not over 'till it's over. In climbing a "beached whale" is a very inelegant way of surmounting the lip of a roof or boulder problem, something akin to dragging your carcass over the lip when all else fails. 9 bolts (20m) Prep: Cody Leyden; FA: Adam Tutte, 2011.

    What a unique rock climb. Body bar for life. Nothing tames the pump like McDonald’s, skittles, and bubly
