DescriptionSir Bors Dream 5.7(+) R / X? FA by Kurt Winkler and Bunny No Bolts Please! Goodspeed July, 1989.
START - At an 8-10ft wide, white-gold streak of rock, between two areas of lichened rock, and about 20-25 feet right of Merlin and a few feet right of Percival's Quest. Bring a good spotter, or better a couple of mattresses!!
If you would like to lead this climb and feel the need to place a bolt, please respect the wishes of the first ascent party and refrain from doing so. P1 of this climb may be top roped safely by running a directional from the P1 belay bolts of Percival's Quest with a slight directional at the placement 40-50ft up.
P1 Climb the left side of the white streak without protection ( 5.7 R or X depending on how you feel about a ground-fall from 20+ feet) and continue up easily. FORGET the small flake on the right at 25-30ft NO PRO THERE, but don't miss the small, horizontal flake about 40-45 feet up, which will probably be at your feet before you see it! (Yellow Alien-sized cam or Tricam.) Continue up and slightly right to belay at a small pine tree with an interesting burl in its root system. 150ft 5.7 R/X.
P2 (2013) Step right and up, passing to the left of a large pine tree (with very old rap anchor, K. Winkler stated this was the probably end of the climb on the first ascent). Diagonally up the slab [5.7+ to 5.8] (v. small and large [black webbed] tri-cams very useful, as is a wire brush) to the small overlap; step over this [5.6-5.7] and up to the trees above. 100ft 5.7+ to 5.8
