cheatstick me, but it goes at grade 20 and is about as scary as bakkies botha with a chainsaw (for the grade). not sure if it is as sandbagged as judge dredd, but it is hard..... cath scott dancing up the route here:

if you use draw extensions then you might make it a bit easier, not only on yourself and the grade, but also on your rope:)

Access has been great. Parking inside the St John's school the security guard has the key to the wilds and with regards to safety we haven't experienced anything. And really hope not too. :thumright

I used to love the wilds. The full traverse is probably the longest I've ever spent on a project. What are the brown streaks from though, don't remember them being there before.

Agree with Johann. Awesome pic, awesome looking route.
I think that I read somewhere that it's Hector Pringle. The route looks tough and if it's a Hector 23R then it's tough!
Big H - that you?
Blyde?
