Jay Knower sets up for the crux of Wild Thing.
This is another Pass classic at the grade. Steep, juggy climbing up a corner leads to a cool roof encounter and a good rest after the crux. A few more technical moves gain the chains. This is a great antidote to the generally thin climbing on the Pass.
This is the farthest left route on Wild Rock's east face.
Bolts to a 2 bolt anchor--with a few old fixed draws at the crux.
Scott Bennett cuts loose.

This is one of the best sport routes I have ever done. I think the name is apt as the setting feels wild, and the moves, from hard slab moves, to big throws, to weird technical moves up top, are the definition of wild. I also think this is pretty hard for 12d. Maybe it was the altitude, but the crux felt very hard, made especially so by the pump gained on the lower, steeper section. And the upper technical moves felt oh so tenuous. I'll be thinking about this one for a long time...

This route needs new hangers!!! Three or four of the hangers in steep section of this route are pulled away from the wall and severely deformed. It would also be nice if the anchors had hangers instead of chain link held to the bolt with a washer.
