Description 

Children's Forest has a number of small cliffs that offer short bolted sport climbs. The rock is similar to the other cliffs on Keller Peak - coarse and grainy.

The cliffs face all directions so it is possible to find sun and shade fairly easily.

When places like Hungover Wall are busy, these crags can offer a quiet alternative.

Getting There 

Drive the Keller Peak road for approximately 4 miles, make a left at the intersection and park in the Children's Forest Car Park.

Walk west along a paved road, passed a gate into the Shady Cove campground. Follow this road down to the campsite. Exit the campsite on a trail in the NW corner. Follow the trail North then west until you cross under a power line. Preschool Rock is directly in front of you.

This is the middle of three bolted routes on the east side and climbs a narrow face between two crack systems. The crux comes early on as you pass the first bolt via a somewhat awkward mantel (easier slightly right), after which it's fun climbing up plates and edges to the anchors. Given 5.10b in the guidebook for the area, but it seems a bit easier.So named by the first ascent party in response to the sport bolting of the nearby Hungover Wall, this was one of several early routes d...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
