Call of the Wild (a.k.a. Cry of the Wild), 2 pitches, 5.11b. Send this one and you will be both growling and howling. Wander up to the anchors on the top of the first pitch of The Perfect Storm any number of ways. Directly above is an obvious horn and dimples for the tips…ease left and back to a hidden jug then step up to the slanting seam and trend up and left. Note the high bolt that protects the crux can be clipped via a hang or on rappel to avoid short slamming falls into the roof edge. The climbing soon cools off to fun 5.10 with great position. As a delightful variation (called White Fang 5.10 b/c) , a person can avoid the crux by starting on pitch two of A Perfect Storm and then climbing back left to gain the short slanting crack. A great pitch either way. FA: Rusty Baillie, Bob Ordner, Brad Gilbert.

Descent Options:

4 out of 5 stars Signature West Face

This route exemplifies everything there the west face has to offer. The second pitch right off the anchors is the money.
