Description 

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

For the Keystone a.k.a. Montezuma area.

Weather station 7.1 miles from here

This is the better of the two lines. Start low and right of Beached on two jugs. Do a big, left hand move to the sloping rail, then pull the undercling (part of start of Beached). Continue up the same as Beached to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
