I don't know about sun...it might. And you get there from the flume parking lot. Just go around the loop counter clockwise till you get to the pool. It will be Ccross from you. Head left over the bridge and go to the look out cut through there and rap down. Make sure you s ops it out from the opposite side of the pool first.

What direction does it face? I feel that one of the most important pieces of information about an ice climb is the aspect in relation to the sun. Yet this info is often missing from the guide.. This time of year it becomes critical information.
