Thanks to Kirk Mallory for adding this peak.
Sunlight Peak is one of three fourteeners in the remote Needle Mountains. The best approach is from Chicago Basin, which is most commonly reached by riding The Durango & Silverton Narrow Guage Railroad to the Needleton Trailhead. The standard route climbs to the beautiful Twin Lakes, to the top of a red couloir, then along the ridge to the summit. The actual summit is an exposed rock, which requires a Class 4 move to reach.
