Liam Oden low on Wild Thing.

Description 

This phenomenal line may be the best at the grade on the mountain. Cast off through precarious terrain to the high first bolt. Clip one more and begin tackling the mind blowingly blank face through immediately difficult and varied sequences. Fierce and unrelentingly technical climbing on a variety of holds brings you to two vicious cruxes stacked at around the 80ft mark. Wildy big moves bring you to the chains. Its not over till its over.

Location 

The second route from the right end of Tin Can Alley.

Protection 

14 bolts to chains
