Starts near Kindergarden Cracks, heads up the left side of the 2nd pitch slab. The crux is the OW at the start to the third pitch. A decent climb.

3 out of 5 stars Took the standard p2 this time

Climbed with Cody. Had him lead p1 since I have done it before; lead the standard p2 exit this time, which I had never done before. Brought my #4 but didn't use it, although it could be placed. The OW was fun and interesting and really warms you up on a cold, overcast day. Like most Schoolhouse Rock routes, this would be a wonderful route if there weren't 100 feet of 5.nothing slab in the middle.

4 out of 5 stars Fun & Easy

Really only 2 moves in 3 very short pitches that rate 5.8. Rest is an easy walk. Still, lots of fun and great scenery. Walk off to the left from the top and scramble back down.

One bolt at first belay, but backed it up as it looked old.

4 out of 5 stars Enjoyable

Most seem to do this with 3 short pitches, but the first two may be able to be connected with a 70m rope (maybe even a 60). The crux is the brief off-width crack (actually, the crack on the face to the right of the OW is where to go). Other than this, there is a lot of low-angle slabby stuff with your choice of seams if you'd prefer.
