This southeast-facing, single pitch wall has numerous sustained 5.8 - 5.9 cracks. The quality of the rock is very solid in most places, though the wall is still exfoliating due to the greenness of the routes and loose blocks do exist. The routes range from beautiful fingers and hands in corners to burly, wide cracks.


Getting There 

This wall lies a few canyons west of the Waterfall area. Park at the large dirt pullout located on the south-side of Hwy 88 just past the turnoff to Markleeville. Cross to the north-side of the street and look for a large boulder on the road side. Take the obvious switchbacks up to the base of a Bandit Crag. Continue up and right, then head east along the mouth of the canyon until you are three gullies eat of Bandit Crag. Deadwood wall sits on the west-side near the top of a narrow gully with several large, downed trees. Hike/scramble up the loose sand and rocks to the base of large arÍte with a roof about three quarters of the way up.

Looking up the arete.  The route starts in the middle of the wall, moves left to the arete and back to the right side of the wall.

I've decided to name the climb after the controversy it caused. No disrespect was intented when developing this route, just trying to provide the community with more fun climbs. That said...Climb up the slab and move out left to a ledge on the arete proper. Clip a bolt and pull a roof (1rst crux). Continue up and right passed three more bolts to a large ledge. From here either 1)traverse right and up to another smaller ledge below a small, right facing corner. Pull the 2nd crux (5.8) and c...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Great contribution. I'm anxious to check out these new routes! I do need to clarify, however, that there already is a Wanderlust route in Woodfords. It's a 5.12 crack on a wall of the same name.
