Description 

The Sunny Side loosely refers to the crags on the north side of Mill Creek, immediately opposite of the Wicked Crag and Horse Creek. This includes the Warm Up Wall and the Aesthetics Wall.

Getting There 

Same approach as for the Wicked Crag, then walk down canyon and across a log with a fixed hand line.
