Sit start on the obvious jug. Pull up into an undercling. The crux is over when you are standing on the start hold, but the top out is still a little tricky. I guess that's where the problem gets its name....


When the approach trail enters the right side of the quarry, this is on the boulder on the left. The Problem "Something to Do" is facing you, this problem is on the opposite, south-facing, side of the boulder.


Perfect flat landing with one pad....

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. Feb 28, 2011

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.

Cheers. Apr 27, 2011

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. Apr 27, 2011
