The obvious crack / ramp in the broken area of the 1st buttress between the big roof and Tony's Tango.

It is a good beginner's outing. The bolts at the top allow a wide variety of toprope adventures.


Standard rack.


John, Kindegarten Crack (5.4) is the shadowed corner on the left side of the photograph The shadowed corner in the center of the photo is the Sunshine Dihedral (5.6). Oct 6, 2008

Right you are Phil, doesn't that Sunshine D. have a little squeeze action at the top? Oct 6, 2008

Dang! Sorry about that. You're quite right! I'll fix. Oct 6, 2008
Yeah MossMan it necks down near the top. Both Kindergarten and SD are great climbs to put a budding young rock rat on.
It's funny that this is called "Sunshine Dihedral" as it is almost always dark and more of a flared chimney than a corner. Oct 7, 2008

Excellent climb for brand new climbers and getting people into crack climbing. First climb I ever did, and first free solo that I've done as well setting up a toprope on. Feb 23, 2011
Great climb for beginners, it can also be extended to the top by climbing 2 more ~5.5 pitches and a nice corner (5.6?) topout. Aug 30, 2011
