Tried climbing in Frenchman’s Coulee on the highly recommended Sunshine Wall. Can you say clueless? The name should have been some sort of indicator to the misery we would face on this blistering hot day. No shade, over 100 degrees (see pic.) and the rock was too hot to touch. The dogs started looking a tad ill so we decided to make the death march out. Our heatstroke was soon alleviated by lying in the shade of the camper and hydrating with cold refreshing beverages (aka beer).
The next day was more successful as ironically we found shade on the Middle East wall.
