5 out of 5 stars What a fun route (froze my but tho!)

Great day as party of 3 up this great route. It was run out but I have climbed worst runout routes by now (snake dike; dike route; aqua knobby). In any case just be sure to have your lead head on. Bring a jacket it gets windy up there. (Tony and I split the leads and I started)

5 out of 5 stars Wild

A great route with the best of views. Crimps are there when you need them, but the bolts are runout, especially leaving the ground. Not a 5.7 gym route.

3 out of 5 stars Walk on the Wild Side

With Zach. Fun route. Bolts all over, but pretty much stay in the 2nd line to the left of the cleft. Go left at the roof then back right and up. Two pitches or simul climb. Trend left on the 2nd pitch and follow a few bolts. A 60 makes 3 raps straight down and to the right at the bottom.
