Update on the approach.
You can still rap in from the anchors of the Flakes...
but today we managed to scramble our way up a few ledges and tiers until we were somewhat below and right of Wild Things. Some more scrambling and then we decided to rope up while we were at a decent sized tree with lots of tat. From there it was 5.something (I had a pack and approach shoes on...) to the alcove where Wild Things starts. I was glad to have a rope.
But that will get you there maybe somewhat faster than Tingeys Torture, or The Flakes.
The thing is still a ton of fun. Lemme know if you head up there soon.

|I can also confirm an approach pitch starting just left of sidewinder is possible.. We did almost a full rope length up dirty cracks to a flake system with good gear that will land you at the belay alcove with bomber chain anchors. I'd rate it 5.8. Also the 5th class mtn goat traverse left to the flakes is pretty trivial though exposed and unprotected.|
