Description Suggest change

The furthest left wall at the main Sinks limestone cliff, a bit of a hike out to this area, but a good collection of great climbs awaits. The Wilds faces SW so sees morning shade and lots of afternoon sun. Classics include Earth AD (9), Candyman (10d), Sandman (10c), The Wilds (12a), Achin' for Booty (12a) and Savages (13a).

Getting There Suggest change

Approach to the main wall and hike left past Purple Galaxy and the prow. As the wall turns from S facing to SW, you've reached the Wilds.
