Left of the "Practice Slab" off the side of the road. Once on top of the slab, go left and take up first gully up. There are multiple starts. Crux at bottom and some of the vertical bands. You can always go left to find an easier way up. Walk off at top that circles around to the west and follows gully back down.

Great place to introduce people to rock climbing.

I've done this route many times with new trad climbers. It was my daughters first lead as well as mine. There are 3 cracks next to each other. The left one is Kindergarten Crack left and is a 5.6. The middle one is Kindergarten Crack Right and it's a 5.7. The right one is Mary's crack and it's a 5.9 that ends in a difficult off width. Jul 24, 2015

The first pitch is by far the most interesting. A fun simple lead with lots of pro. There is a wall in the middle of a less steep second pitch where interesting lines more to the right can potentially be taken. Sep 26, 2011

A great first lead, though the beginning (right or left) felt a bit stiff for 5.5. Great pro, though, and a great first multipitch. Jul 17, 2011
there are 3 variations, left, right and center. Its a bit bulgy, and off width, so bring some big pieces (up to a 4 camalot). its about 2.5 pitches. Walk off left and down the obvious gully to return to the trail.

good early lead for the aspiring multi-pitch trad climber. Nov 17, 2002
