Description 

The Orange Sunshine area is the first part of the cliff you reach from the trail. There are a number of fine cracks and sport routes. The tan, mostly lichen free rock lends a warm, friendly ambience to the area. In mild years, the wall offers good winter climbing.


Getting There 

Hike to the cliff.
