Description 

These pillars are down on the far end of Sunshine Wall, furthest left (west), just before the Gully #2 approach.

Routes here are fun and less technical than some of those found on the King Pins.

Due to the fact that the pillars literally tilt back, they are a good place for several beginner trad routes

Getting There 

Either approach via the #2 gully or just walk along the trail from Sunshine Wall.

Partway up the route, beautiful December day!

Another Notch in My Lipstick Case 5.7+ 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  WA : Vantage (Frenchman Coulee) : ... : Tilted Pillars
guidebook: "Climb hand crack in a rich facing corner moving left onto a ledge. Next follow a thin crack past a bulge. After the bulge, crack widens and eases as your ascend."A VERY fun beginner trad route. I found the beginning better if done as a set of stemming moves. And then moving into the crack. There is a little bit of loose rock on the route so use caution....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
