Description 

A short boulder move protected by the first bolt gets you onto the slab above. From here delicately move up the well featured slab to the second bolt and then to the horizontal break with a tree. Don't forget to sling the tree before continuing on up the upper slab to the third bolt. This is the mental crux of the route and it is run out. A decent small nut placement is possible just past the tree on your way to the third bolt. Easy climbing from the third bolt to the anchors.

The run outs on this climb are a bit spooky but both the upper and lower portions of the slab are well endowed with many well defined edges. The hardest move on this climb is pulling up and onto the lower slab.

A variation of this climb, Sunny Girl, goes left from the tree to another bolt. It is equally as run out but the potential fall isn't as scary.

Location 

On the big slab on the very left-hand side of Brunser, there are two routes that follow the same first two bolts before splitting. This is the route that splits to the right bolt on the upper face. The route that splits to the left bolt is Sunny Girl.

Protection 

3 bolts, a tree, and a small nut.

Rap anchor at the top.
