DescriptionSunshine wall is hidden in the trees on the west side of the lake and hosts a number of good quality moderate climbs. The wall is made up of a main slab approximately 100' high and a slightly shorter section which holds a couple of routes on the right.
All the routes are on excellent rock with a fine position.
As the name suggests the wall gets plenty of sunshine (at least until 2pm) so plan accordingly, depending on the time of year.
The stand out route of the wall is Little Gem, which climbs beautifully up the right side of the main slab.
With a very short approach (less than 10 minutes walk) and good rock this area will be popular.
Getting ThereFrom the Horseshoe Lake parking area follow the path south along the western side of the lake. Cross over 4 footbridges (see picture below) and just when you cross a small stream (with no bridge) take a right up into the forest.
Follow the faint trail for about 30 yards until another stream crossing and then turn right and follow the stream up a steep slope for a few yards. At the top of the slope head up and leftwards towards the granite outcrop that you will now see through the tree.
Continue to the base of the tall slabby face.
The approach takes less then 10 minutes.
