Description

This area encompasses the columns and climbing routes between the Gully #2 approach and the end of the Sunshine Wall trail.

There are three sub-areas of the Far End of Sunshine Wall divided here into Main Wall, Tomato Wall and the Riverview Columns.

This is a less visited end of the Sunshine Wall, but with some worthy, if shorter climbs. The area can be a nice alternative in windy or hot (sunny) conditions because it provides shelter from both at various times in various aspects.

Getting There

The best approach is to take gully #3. To get to gully #3, take the approach trail towards the Sunshine Wall. While still on the bluff, look for a fork with a metal sign with "Sunshine Wall" pointing in one direction and "Gullies" in the other. Take the Gullies fork and continue along this trail past gully #2 almost to its end, look for the easy gully #3.

I was at sunshine this past weekend, and towards the very end of the Sunshine wall I found a nice bolted route in the middle of seemingly nothing. I cant place what it was, but if someone could tell me that would be awesome! It wasn't anything harder than a 5.8 most likely. Very pumpy.
If it just hasn't been added to the list yet, I highly suggest it! Ton of fun!

Heh, I just came here to ask about the same route. It does seems like a 5-8 or so. 6 bolts. There are 1-2 other routes around the same area, and then a beehive on the trail a short while after that. May 9, 2017

Are you talking about new routes past River View Columns, just past the trail down to lower walls, just above Riverview Park. I have not taken a closer look, but did notice that a column collapsed there some time this winter. Feb 12, 2018

@geoffgeorges sounds like the area the previous posts are talking about. that route is directly above weeping holes on a sill, and felt 5.8

I inquired with a few developers recently to get the history of that 5.8, and the others in that area, but no one knew who put it up. it's a good addition. The beehive mentioned is there every year, but is around the corner. Feb 15, 2018
