Fun moves on excellent rock: A diamond in the rough. Climb up slabs to a ledge below the steep arete. Clip the second bolt then setup for a powerful dyno followed by steep climbing up big jugs.

[Hide Comment] Couldn't figure the dyno. There's a big pinch in the middle of the route just below the 2nd bolt. Folks with a big reach (not me) might be able to use the arete to the left to get up to the juggy part.

This route can be top-roped, if you don't mind an airy swing on a fall.

I'd like to work this route, but it is a long walk up that steep boulder field... I might not get back there soon... Sep 1, 2011

[Hide Comment] It was originally done by, and still is by myself and anyone I've seen, with the left hand out on the arete (as its own pinch) and a throw from there with the right pinch to the horizontal, whether short or tall. That's the crux. I'm tall, so it's less of a dyno, but still kinda dynamic.

Also, the Schoolroom really isn't as far up there as I think it appears. With a good continuous pace, with rack and rope, you should be able to get up to the wall in 20-25 minutes. Jul 8, 2016

[Hide Comment] Surprised by how cool this was. Really burly move down low that felt pretty hard. Felt harder than the crux move on left pile in bcc (.12b) but it’s right off the deck so you aren’t pumped when making the move like you are on left pile. The rest is sequency and fun on pretty good holds. Oct 26, 2019

[Hide Comment] Scott, thanks for the props, and thanks for making the trek north from SLC. It was always like pulling teeth to get folks to check out the Schoolroom.

I always thought it was a cool little route that climbed much better than it looks. Oct 26, 2019
