The legendary roof crack in the Smoke Bluffs. Start up an easy groove tp get established on a good jug at the start of the roof. Then use hand-jams, fingerlocks, heel-toe cams and more crack trickery to climb through the roof with a cruxy sequence just before turning the lip.

The route Wonderland, which is the last pitch of the Smoke Bluff Connection, used to have two separate entries. They have been combined and the later entry deleted; all comments, ticks, stars, ratings, and pictures were moved to the original entry. It was then moved from the Wall area to Pixie Corner, where it belongs.
