Although the boulder looks nothing like a whale, the topout move on the two routes can resemble a beached whale. This boulder offers two quality lines in a small cave in the Oasis area. Except for the east-facing overhang the rest of the boulder looks like junk.

Getting There 

From the main Oasis area (landing of Refrigerator Boulder), the boulder is located 100' west of the Refrigerator (see area photo under Oasis Area photos).

Climbing Season

Beached Beluga V5 6C  Colorado : Keystone a.k.a. Montezuma : ... : Whale Boulder
Beached Beluga is a great problem that starts with left hand on the sloping rail/ledge and a right in a good undercling. Do a big move to a thin but sweet flake, and then pull the topout (crux). Either do the "Beached Beluga" or see if you can pull it normally....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
