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.
