Description

School Room Slabs offers four TR climbs on Potash Road with an easy 4th class scramble to the anchors. Most of the routes are in the 5.4-5.5 range, although a couple of variations at the start of some of these climbs can provide a little more of a challenge while still on TR.

If you have a small trad rack, you can also lead a short crack to the left of the tree where the 4th class scramble to the top is located. This is a super fun 5.5/5.6 lead (60ft) with bolted anchors and you can easily TR this after you lead it. This was our group's favorite route.

This area is highly recommended for kids, newbies and large groups of gym climbers who happen to be in the area for the weekend and want to get in a few hours climbing. We managed to get a group of 8 on three routes each in under 3 hours.

Location

Drive down Potash Road from town and pass the Jaycee campground. School Room slabs are near the start of Wall Street, at the second pullout on the right after the campground. The main section of Wall Street starts immediately after these slabs. The anchors are reached by a 4th class scramble directly above the lone tree near the middle of the slabs to a ledge at the top of the climbs. I'd wear climbing shoes for this scramble if you're not used to desert rock.

Protection

Two-bolt anchors at the top of each route.

The left-most variation is now bolted for sport.

Light rack of nuts or cams to lead the short 5.5ish crack to the left of the tree. Green alien to a #2 or #3 camalot.
