Description"Launch Ledge" is a great place to "launch" a climb of Bruin, True Colors, L'Anniversaire, Rhino Skin, Dead Easy and Livin' Easy.
Starting from toe of the slab, scramble/walk up left-ish to the watercourse and then to the flattish area of darkly colored rock.
Scramble [class 3/4] , or climb belayed, up the obvious, right-trending, Class 3/4 ramp-and-broken-corner (photo) about 75 ft to the last, spacious ( 3 ft x 5 ft) ledge with a bomber crack for medium cams at its base. (photo)
If the watercourse is wet and not to your liking, it is possible to ascend the grey rock starting from about 1/2 way up from the toe to the watercourse. This is more difficult (about 5.2 R/X ) and some may want a belay here.
