Directions:  Hike left toward the end of the main cliff band looking for a clean slab with shiny bolts, just before a buttress. This is Wanderlust. The climb is up the dark water streaked face, right of an obvious groove.
Description: This climb has rarely if ever been repeated, if for no other reason than it's tricky protection.
    Pitch 1: Start at the left end of the Dedication tree ledge. Climb the back of the dihedral and exit right at the top.

Gear: Standard rack with some small cams.
Descent: Rappel from trees using 2 ropes or walk off.
History:  1982 - Mark Rickie & Polly DeConto
