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 routes...you 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.
