Description Suggest change

End of an Era is the sharp arete located just to the left of Bob's Buttress Crack and to the right of New Era on the east face of Kindergarten Rock. I have found it easiest to park in the South Garden Parking Lot and then walk North to get to Kindergarten Rock. From the road, there is a short climber's trail going up to a large boulder on the east side of Kindergarten Rock. The climb is behind this boulder. There are two starts to the climb:

Option 1: Go straight up the arete to get to the first bolt which will be about 25 feet up from the base of the arete. This is rated at a 5.10 as a direct approach and is called Death of a Dinosaur .

Option 2: Start at the bottom of Bob's Buttress Crack and place a nut in the crack to protect you and your belayer from being pulled down a steep hill should you fall before the first bolt. From there, climb up and left to get on the arete up to the first bolt.

Follow the bolts up the arete and don't forget to enjoy the view. There are two bolts with rap rings at a lowering station about 70' off the deck.
