This route is described in the Mayr guide as 5.9* - Rock quality is suspect, 1st bolt is ridiculously low and to in my opinion didn't have a single .9 move on it. Saying it's .7 is generous.

This sunny wall is a good place to warm up on a cold morning. It is in the sun untill late afternoon.

The location (mapped coordinates) for this wall are wrong. They should be a bit more north. Sunnyside is the same formation as Parking Lot wall just follow towards the right to get to the climbs.
