Climb Schoolroom. Continue about 50' straight above the final pitch up a 5.5 3" crack.

Route Description

This route climbs a clean slab/face that makes for a pleasant additional pitch to Schoolroom. There are plenty of beginners who will appreciate this strongly protected 5.5 route.


This route has no recorded history because the vast majority of climbers never cared about this little 5.5 X route. It was given a name and bolted for beginners in Aug 2007. Rest assured it isn't the start of grid-bolting in LCC. Beginners have already said plenty of nice things about this route and are really enjoying it now.

Yeah, shame on you Clay for having an opinion that differs from the bolter of this route. Oct 30, 2007

Please refrain from using comments for character attacks. It violates rule #1 - don't be jerk.

Have something intelligent to add about the route? Then add it. But keep the junior high name calling to yourself.

There is no ego involved in a 5.5 slab.. It is just pointless.. There are plenty of killer moderates around.. I have enjoyed most of them also.. It is not cool with me to bolt routes that have history behind them!!! Such as good moderate solos that have already seen first ascents years ago!! Nov 5, 2007

STP, you understand correctly. For the most part, if you get there first, you get to make the call about how things go down -- well up, really -- forever. That's the way it works. First ascentionists have the say so over what happens. The bolts should be removed. Jun 8, 2011

I disagree that the bolts should be removed. I have not climbed this yet and was just searching for something easy and simple yet awesome because its in LCC. I am a granite hound, some say snob because I rarely go to BCC. I like granite and would love to take my kids on some granite. I was searching for something fun, challenging and protected.

My view, if its a face climb, let there be bolts. If its a crack, let it be trad with chains at the top. By the previously stated rational, if I could send .14's I could go in search of <.10's free solo them and call it a day. Name the route, hose all that come after me. Thats not cool and it does nothing to perpetuate the great sport of climbing. I am not saying we should lace up the rock with bolts but really I can have just as much fun on a 7 as a 9.

PS its like there being a rule that I can't lace up a route with trad because the FA only used 5 pieces of pro, oh and no camalots, just nuts, because the FA only used nuts. 5 nuts remember, with short slings. Oct 10, 2014
