L to R R to L Alpha
Sunshine Wall is a fine wall located to the West of Cynical Pinnacle with some fine, moderate-length routes in the moderate range. In particular, Turkey Foot Crack, Standard Route, and Equinox are likely to delight.
Park at the large parking area and follow the old logging road past a switchback and across the mostly dry streambed, then start looking for a cairn and a faint trail on your right. This will lead straight uphill to the left side of the Sunshine Wall.
