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.
