Beached Whale V6 7A  MA : Hammond Pond : ... : Beached Whale Boulder
This problem is very short. The crux for me was the first move to the V-shaped crimp. Getting your feet situated underneath you feels a bit awkward, but once you hit that first crimp and readjust, the rest of the problem flows nicely. Fun, aesthetic line, it is just unfortunate it is so tiny. It is worth a try if you are in the area and enjoy overhangs with small, positive crimps....[more]   Browse More Classics in MA
