This recently developed area is the best place at The Quarry for easy routes as it offers a concentrated selection of over a dozen routes 5.10 and under, with most routes being 5.9 or easier. All the routes are relatively short and tend to be more slabby than the typical Quarry route (Slab City being the exception).

The area, and all of the routes, are names from the popular 1970's television program Schoolhouse Rock which featured animated cartoons with an educational theme.

Some of the better routes here include The Energy Blues (5.6), Interplanet Janet (5.6), The Check's in the Mail (5.7), Conjunction Junction (5.9) & What's Your Function? (5.10b).

This place is awesome and super easy. Its great for taking newbies on top ropes. This place is great for top roping and for beginner leaders (sport). Lots of rock fall so bring helmets. Helmets are a great idea for this area.

Pretty much a big giant, low-angled slab. Many easy and safe routes, which are good for leading and climbing newbies. Chossy at times.
