Jamie nearing the final crux. To the right you can...


An alternate start to Wild Kingdom, Crocodile Hunter skips a painful mono move and replaces it with some awesome big moves off of less injury-inducing holds.
An excellent enduro-fest with great movement.


Start ~5 feet to the left of Wild Kingdom on a two finger pocket for the left hand and a good three finger pocket for the right. Go up to a large pod to join Wild Kingdom at the 4th bolt.


Bolts with chain draws to open shuts.

This is solid 13a now with the lower start and extended finish. Steve Lapen did the FA.

It's also super fun. One of the better routes in the area. And long. With the crux at the end.

A brilliant endurance route. Not a single "hard" move on it. I'd say that the toughest sequence is maybe v3 or something like that so its super approachable. The crux of the route is keeping the pump at bay and working the "crocodile lounge" rest 2/3 of the way up.
