Getting there ...
From the Horseshoe Lake parking (GPS lat long approx N37.6129 W119.0209), the approach is about 150 vertical feet of uphill over 0.5 mile distance (45 vertical meters over 0.85 km distance). Typical approach times in the range of 10-20 minutes.
We found it this way ...
Walk on the obvious bicycle path South about 0.35 mile (600 meters), crossing five bridges. Where the bike path crosses a little creek (usually dry) with no bridge (N37.6072 W119.0225), exactly there turn Right off the bike trail onto a faint trail.
. (If reach the a bridge with a wood handrail on one side, you've gone too far).
. (If you reach the Horseshoe Slabs crag, you've gone way too far).
Follow the faint dirt path generally SSW about 0.1 mile (170 meters) distance, up through the big trees, crossing a couple little (dry) creeks, with some steep sections and curves, to reach the Sunshine Wall.
. (my GPS recorded N37.6058 W119.0235, fairly close to what this MP page says).
