Description Suggest change

This route climbs the corner on the right side of the upper slab on the right side of the Wild.

I would recommend that only experienced trad leaders lead this route. It's not hard and the protection is pretty good, but still, you've got to have confidence in placing gear in limestone. We don't like to bolt cracks, that's why we left it as a trad route. If you don't have trad gear, just toprope the thing, but don't bolt the crack.

Location Suggest change

The obvious corner to the right of Welcome to the Jungle. There is one bolt in the middle of the route where the crack doesn't take any gear.

Protection Suggest change

A couple slings (I slung the detached pillar with a shoulder-length sling), medium cams (I used red and gold Camalots), a quickdraw for the one bolt in the middle of the route. Maybe some medium-large nuts. Chains on top.

You can toprope this route by first climbing either Welcome to the Jungle or Stampede and just reaching over to the chains of this route. The anchors are a few feet apart.
