This is the first good wall you come to as you come down around the corner. The area is usually sunny and quite often busy because many people stop here first on their way to the Stems and Seeds Area.

Getting There 

After you go through the narrow corridor/chimney part of the approach trail, just head down the trail a little further and the area is right around the corner.

The crux of this one hits right off the ground and itís also the section that protects the poorest. The first satisfying placement is about 5 feet below the bolt which itself is not really in the best location as a bomber placement can be found 8 inches above it (but of course I clipped it). Once you clip the bolt, the climbing eases (& seriousness decreases) to typical Sunshine Wall crack climbing (i.e. stemming). Belay off the bolted anchors atop the sport route to the right....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
