This route climbs the solid sky blue stone in the middle of the short wall. Climb the line of bolts by starting next to the two "eye" pockets. Be wary not to climb into the choss out right.

Fun slab and face climbing on water worn baby blue rock leads to a mini roof. The anchor is directly under the large roof slightly right.

The crux comes at the 2nd bolt, so stick clip is recommended. Once off the bouldery beginning, easy well protected slab climbing finishes up a solid refrigerator block.

This adventurous, long climb, climbs the bright baby blue streak up the centre of "Wild Thing" Wall by sttepping left and up from the anchor of Apollo or from traversing in from Fun Club's ledge (risky 5.6 traverse). Balancey, feature climbing to a bulge with the first crux. Crank above to gain a no-hands-shake half way, where the wall starts to get steeper. Above lies a blunt arête with good holds scattered, all in the wrong direction. Step out (airy) onto the arête and pull the bouldery crux up a flake system into a powerful bulge. This position is excellent and exposed, with the perfect blend of technique and power. A fun finish on excellent water worn rock, concluding with a mantel to the finishing hold under the anchor. 3-4 long draws will help with rope drag on bolts 1-3 and bolt 7. You can Lower only with a 70m rope
