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.
