The direct start to Wild Thing. Finally the line is, well, independent.

Previously bolted, but as far as I know, never done.. Anyone?


Start on the first bolt of Big Red and step into the white corner/scoop to the left.


Bolts to a chain anchor. Careful use of long slings and back-cleaning (especially the first two bolts) in the initial corner reduces rope drag to nothing higher up on Wild Thing. Bring a 70m rope, or tie knots!!


Sharratt did the bottom part and then went up Wild Life. He did not do this line. Good job on this link up. One thing I love about climbing at Wild River is the monster need that 70M rope.

Mad Dog's arete on the right side of the crag is a route I have always wanted to do. It is not very well protected on the bottom. But it is a full 35M long with great climbing. Jul 29, 2010
i freed the start to the horizontal@10 years ago at about 13a..but never linked the whole took it to the top? great job... Jul 20, 2010
