Does anyone know when High Plains Drifter gets sun this time of year?

Thanks!

I think about an hour or less before sunset. Could be nice warm light if you're trying to shoot it, but it faces almost directly North. You have a pretty small window this time of year.

This wall faces pretty much due east and gets the first sun on the Chief (actually the blatantly unclimbed arete left of Visionquest gets the first rays probably along with the super obscure route Tattered Tights) but the HPD wall gets nice light for an hour or more if you can get your a$% out of bed....
