Beeched Whale.

Description 

This is a great problem first established by local hard-man, Jonathan Hogue, in 2016. Though this boulder problem is slightly "contrived," it's definitely worth the effort. Fun and stout!

Sit start on the right-most side of the boulder on a match-able incut crimp rail. Work your way left, climbing under the fallen tree and finishing in the middle of the block. Big moves for the finish required, and "beating the forearm pump," is the name of the game with "Beeched Whale," as it's quite long (Around 12-16 moves!).

  • Stand start directly under the finish and it goes at V1+, worth warming up on!*

Location 

Beech Cliff and Canada Cliffs trails.

Protection 

Pads. Low ball, traverse.
