Description 

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.

Be sure to stay on route in this area. I have seen rocks that are a couple cubic feet come down in School House Rocks a few times. Be aware that it may be the result of some inexperienced new climber above you. The rest of the high traffic areas in the quarry are cleaned up pretty well.

In my opinion, the climbs here are not very enjoyable, even for the grade. This seems to be the majority consensus of others that I have talked to. However, it sees a lot of traffic, so enough people must like it to keep going back.
