For all the crap this shorty half-problem gets, if you're new to bouldering it might just be your first sensible heel hook, and even after ticking problems on all three remaining sides of Eliminator it still feels pretty darn good to click into that huge, loving crimp. Jul 17, 2012

This really isn't much of a lunge...more like a reach around.
Plus it's more like VB+. Feb 18, 2008
I got the problem's name from the Horsetooth Hang comp guidebook. It's right next to Beached Whale. Feb 18, 2008

What problem is this exactly? It sounds like beached whale from your description or possibly the easier variant right of beached. I am unfamiliar with any problem named "corner lunge" on the Eliminator Boulder. Nov 2, 2007
