This new line (bolted spring 2017?) is the easiest sport route at Summersville, and possibly in the entire NRG region. Not sure what the first ascensionist named it, but our family has been calling it On Top of the Milky Whale because it really does feel like you are on the back of a great white whale. The clean rock has light green lichen patterns that seem almost bioluminescent. The route has a purity that reminds you of the nearby Under the Milky Way. 


Climbs the very slabby face of a large boulder to the left of the trail when walking from the DC Memorial Boulder to Long Wall.


4 bolts, 2 bolt anchors
