Description 

Kindergarten Rock is a large, somewhat broken crag sitting downslope from Preschool Rock that offers a number of moderate crack and face routes on it's east face, and is readily identified by the power lines running next to the rock.

Notable climbs here include Kindergarten Cop (5.9) a balancy face to slabby arete, Children Should Not Use Power Tools (5.10a) a mantel to plated face above and Child Proof (5.11b) a tricky seam to hand crack.

Getting There 

From Preschool Rock head right and follow a trail, which somewhat parallels the power lines, leading downslope to Kindergarten Rock which rises out of a seasonal stream. The approach takes about 10-15 minutes from the car.

This is the middle of three bolted routes on the east side and climbs a narrow face between two crack systems. The crux comes early on as you pass the first bolt via a somewhat awkward mantel (easier slightly right), after which it's fun climbing up plates and edges to the anchors. Given 5.10b in the guidebook for the area, but it seems a bit easier.So named by the first ascent party in response to the sport bolting of the nearby Hungover Wall, this was one of several early routes d...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
