The lunge on Corner Lunge.


Start with hands matched on good start hold on the right side of the south face of the boulder. Go left to jug and heel hook right foot onto the starting handhold. Lunge up to the arete to a sticky sloper. Finish by using remaining edges to top out.


Southeast arete on the Eliminator Boulder.


Spotter and pad for lunge move.

What problem is this exactly? It sounds like beached whale from your description or possibly the easier variant right of beached. I am unfamiliar with any problem named "corner lunge" on the Eliminator Boulder.

I got the problem's name from the Horsetooth Hang comp guidebook. It's right next to Beached Whale.

This really isn't much of a lunge...more like a reach around.
Plus it's more like VB+.

For all the crap this shorty half-problem gets, if you're new to bouldering it might just be your first sensible heel hook, and even after ticking problems on all three remaining sides of Eliminator it still feels pretty darn good to click into that huge, loving crimp.
