I did this too quickly and then repeated it for it to be V3. Would love some other people's impressions as I don't boulder much though.
Name fits the top out perfectly, esp with no pad and no spotter, haha.
Anyone done the left variation? It's definitely harder and I fell off too many times to keep trying without a pad or spotter.

I agree, The Whale is not V3 (though really fun!). I've done 3 differ'nt sequences to this problem, none harder than V2.
Also, I've played with the left side a bit now and worked out a really interesting line. Much harder than The Whale, but I haven't sent cuz, well...I'm a bit of a Sally.
Was looking today and there are at least two other (good) problems on the surrounding boulders. Though you would want multiple pads and a spotter.

|The book lists this as V3. That's why I posted it as V2-3.... Not hard, but was hard enough for me. I'd imagine people who boulder a ton would say it's like arguing about the difference between 5.2 and 5.3.... Too easy for them to care. I thought it was a fun problem though.|
