Find the crack system that leads to the small chimney. Gear options are plenty for the trained eye. The climbing is easy but the rock quality is not the most inspiring. Great route for learning to trad climb.


Save The Whales is cliff right of Nuke The Whales(5.6)

Seam that leads to the small chimney.


Light rack - Short pitch. Natural Anchor.


Minor historical correction. I was the third climber and belayer on this route. Chris led I think. Done shortly after Nuke the Whales. Scott Cobourn Nov 23, 2014

One day Scott, Sean & I went up to Crowder's with the express purpose of climbing everything that had not been climbed, touched, fondled, or molested. This was one of several routes we did that day, including "Maggie Does Joey"' "Shaved Dog Dihedral"' and several others. I don't remember who thought of the name, but Scott suggested changing the name from whales to "Wails". We thought that was a good idea. Oct 15, 2017
