Those looking for better protected, easy climbs should think about Dead Easy (5.1 - 5.2 G/PG), Livin' Easy (5.4-5.5 PG / with 5.3 PG-13) , or P1 of Rubberneck (5.5 G / 5.3 PG/R) instead.
Kurt was climbing friction exceedingly well in the 1980's ( he still does!) as demonstrated by "True Colors" and "Sir Bor's Dream (on Table Mt.)
Usually wet with run-off until late spring or summer.
START: From the toe, hike up to the brown slab area and then scramble, or climb belayed (Class 3-4) to the "launching Ledge" (see separate description). Scramble (or climb belayed) 5-6 ft up to the next highest ledge system, and then traverse left 25-30 ft to a fixed piton. (photos)
Pitch 1 - From the piton, Climb straight up the lightly colored orange rock just left of a brown streak. About 40 ft above the piton a hole, just left of a curving flake, takes a Green Camalot. Towards the top, if one moves left, out of the orange rock to darker rock, some gear might be placed.
Step a few feet right to the belay at a stance just below the right-hand of two crescent-shaped cracks. (single 3/8" bolt and new (2014) piton) 130-140 ft 5.4-5.5 R/X There is ancient remnant of one of Kurt's two original belay pitons still visible. [Same belay as for True Colors]
P2 - Move out RIGHT and finish on P2 of True Colors. 130-150 ft 5.3 bring a wire brush.
Rap from the trees with 2 ropes. Or, from the belay at the end of P1, climb down and right a few feet to the new anchor for L'Anniversaire. Rap from there with 2 ropes. ( A single 70 meter JUST makes it to the "launch Ledge".
