As you drive into the Devil's Gap, you'll see the north side of Orient Point to the left. Here you will find Wicked Wanda, another of the popular, easily accessable routes in the Devil's Gap.

Getting There 

From the bottom of the Big Hill, head across the flats and take a left on a well-defined track on a berm. Before the end of the berm, turn of to the right and drive along side, in order to avoid a steep, rutted drop-off at the end. At the end of the berm, turn right, then left (toward South Ghost) for a short way, and then right on a well-traveled track that takes you into the Devil's Gap. Continue to a signed parking area at the Banff Park Boundary. It is illegal to drive past this point.
