Sunshine Wall is a southwest-facing Wingate sandstone cliff in the northern end of Salt Valley and a few miles north of Arches National Park. The long-cliff, easily accessed from US 191 and I-70, offers lots of good bolted slab routes in a beautiful desert setting. It’s a particularly good climbing venue during the cooler months since it receives lots of sunshine. Access, however, is troublesome after rain and snow because of the dirt roads to the cliff can become impassable with mud. The wall is on BLM public land and has no current restrictions. Free camping is found below the base of the wall. Bring water and camp at existing sites. Most of the routes are over 100 feet long. Use a 70-meter rope or two ropes to rappel from anchors.
