Sunset from the Seuss Wall, Keller Peak
Children's Forest has a number of small cliffs that offer short bolted sport climbs. The rock is similar to the other cliffs on Keller Peak - coarse and grainy.
The cliffs face all directions so it is possible to find sun and shade fairly easily.
When places like Hungover Wall are busy, these crags can offer a quiet alternative.
Drive the Keller Peak road for approximately 4 miles, make a left at the intersection and park in the Children's Forest Car Park.
Walk west along a paved road, passed a gate into the Shady Cove campground. Follow this road down to the campsite. Exit the campsite on a trail in the NW corner. Follow the trail North then west until you cross under a power line. Preschool Rock is directly in front of you.

The crux comes early and we felt the climb was easier than the 5.8 rating given in Hidden Treasures, with most of the climb going at 5.6. A fun climb with great feet, good ledges and nice jams.
