A solid, long, aesthetic edging route is a special occurrence, and especially when the movement is good. The Wild Whisper is just such a line. This beautiful pitch is riddled with naturally sculpted finger buckets, substantial crimps, and the occasional rest.

Start on the same holds as Up Drafting, but quickly turn the corner to the right on the juggy diagonal rail, and the first bolt to your right. Crimp your way through the "stone ripple" section with big feet, and then get ready to tech your way up the gorgeous scoop face which is as good as edging gets.

At the break at 45' take a good shake cause the crimp fest continues above until you join the 9th bolt of Clear Air Turbulence. This link is obvious, and natural. Enjoy the bulgy, bouldery air of Clean Air Turbulence past 4 more bolts to a two bolt anchor.
