With its southern exposure, the aptly-named Sun Wall is a great place to climb in the winter (and to be avoided in the hot summer months). This cliffline runs parallel to the road into Sand Rock, and in many places you'll see roadside campsites across the way after topping out. The wall is actually a series of free-standing towers detached from the main wall; in many places, the gap is narrow enough to jump across and hike back down to the trail.
From the parking lot, cut left before heading to the Pinnacle/Holiday block areas; follow a trail down the hill and to the left until you reach the base of the cliff.

White Gold 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a AL : Sand Rock : Sun Wall
One of Sand Rock's classic trad lines, White Gold is a burly lead with nice exposure. If you're not a solid 5.10 leader and/or good at hand-jamming, you're probably not ready for this one.Starting in a sort of shallow chimney, follow the pebbly rock up to a left-facing corner. Jam the crack up to a roof, then move right onto the face and on to the top....[more] Browse More Classics in AL
