I really enjoyed the standard Wild Child. Fun crack up to the roof, then interesting moves in the wide crack above. I used two 4's but a 4 and a 5 would also work. There is a bolted anchor on the next column to the left, on a ledge. We chose to top-belay from there, as the rope was running over a rough edge. This anchor has a collection of webbing and a single biner on it for rapping; chains and quicklinks would be a great addition!

This route is a blast. IMO it is 5.7+ if you do not take the variation flake on the climber's left after the roof. The crux for me was the two moves after the roof is bypassed. It's wide and awkward. I brought a #3, 3.5, and 4 and used all of them.
