Description

Just left of Big Sky, the name and rating of this route have been in question for several years. Since most climbers refer to it as the route on the left of Big Sky, I felt the name was befitting. The crux is between 2nd and 3rd clips. After clip 5, the rating becomes 5.8 or 5.9 to the anchors.

Location

This is just left of Big Sky on the east side of Kindergarten Rock.

This is a fantastic route with a great crux sequence! I felt the crux was between the 3rd and 4th bolts. Jun 9, 2011

I thought the route was good and sustainable for about a 10c. Without the crux (about the 4th bolt), it's easily a 10a because of the sequence of the route. Probably my favorite route on Kindergarden Rock to date! Apr 28, 2012
So I was climbing this route and pulled of a huge slab of rock. Good thing it was the low part or else it could have been bad. I would watch out for hollow rock, and always make sure it's not gonna pull off. Sep 22, 2012

I think this may be the hardest lead I have done so far, felt like I used just fingertips the whole time. Jun 29, 2013
