Description

Start at the good ledge that makes up the whale’s mouth. Go straight up the bulging prow using tough sloping dishes and finish the difficult mantle. (Same top out as “Sweet Nothings”)

Location

The Whale Boulder (Riverside Drive/Buttermilk trail) - From 42nd street parking lot, head left (west) on the trail following Riverside Drive (not over the foot bridge). The boulder will be just past the 2nd stream crossing on the left between the trail and Riverside Drive. It is right next to the trail with just enough room for a few pads that aren’t in the way of the hikers and bikers.

Protection

At least 2 pads and a good spotter.
