Description 

Great line!

Go past all the lower routes and keep going up hill. From Occupied Territory (13a with an obvious dihedral start), continue past 5 or 6 lines uphill until you come to a 100 foot piece of stone with a hueco-loaded line going right up the middle.

This line is Wild Wild West.

The crux comes early and is not straightforward. I found that the way you attack it changes the grade significantly. After getting through this difficulty, there are several other 11 to 11+ moves as you work to the anchors.

This has great continuity and spectacular rock!

Protection 

7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

I'll second three stars for this fine half rope of excellent stone. Tricky tol start, but very continuous throughout. Huecos were a bit sandy last time I was up here.

Super good route, the stone quality is awesome, and I like the sustained climbing. The huecos were awesome, and this has some of the cooler holds I have seen in the Boulder area.
