Beautiful and positive rails at the top.
This is a reorganizational entry (thanks to Micah
) to help facilitate the L->R sorting, because it "really doesn't make sense when you are going pretty much around an entire rock." This subarea will include routes from the East Face.
Some of the rock on this face is the most solid in The Garden. Enjoy!
Park on the southeast side of Kindergarten Rock. Hike up established trails.

Does anyone have information on the crack directly left of New Era? This would be the crack/chimney that is formed on the right side of the face where Diesel and Dust is. There is a pin lower down on the line about 35 feet up. It's not any harder than 5.7.
