A long day (~16 miles and ~6500' gain/loss) on an exploratory attempt on Old Desolate from Sunrise. Will leave the Wonderland Trail at ~4800' to ascend cross country through Vernal Park. Descent will be down west side of Old Desolate to rejoin Wonderland Trail at Moraine Park/Mystic Lake pass. Will then follow Wonderland Trail past Mystic Lake (possible swim for brave souls) back to Sunrise by way of Skyscraper Pass.
