Description 

Sunnyside Up lies on the west side of The Egg. Approach is down south side of The Egg and around corner to south west most face of rock. This climb is definitely tide dependent with the bottom 10' often wet. It is also this 10' that is crumbly and the crux even when dry. Hard, fingery, tiring moves get you finally to an in-balance stance at 3rd bolt. From here to the top is very sustained hard 10 face moves up interesting featured rock. A very fun route and worth doing even if you have to aid a little at the bottom!

Protection 

Seven bolts to two-bolt anchor.

Probably more like 5.11c, this route starts with a V3/4 boulder problem and then cruises up continuous moves on varied rock, some stellar some junky.....
