In the middle of the student wall, between the reproductive wall and the textbooks, the ground rises up to make the cliff only about 20 feet high. I found two top rope anchors above easy routes, but for the rest of the wall you'll have to find another way to protect if you want to climb there. Reasonable to bring first time climbers to set up short top ropes for them, but otherwise not much reason to spend time here.

Getting There 

Keep walking to the right past the reproductive wall.

Featured Route For Kindergarten Cliff

Kindergarten Crack 5.5 4b 13 IV+ 11 MS 4a  Oregon : Smith Rock : ... : Kindergarten Cliff
Very short climb suitable for first time climbers. A nice little crack on a relaxed slope. As you would expect for the rating, there are always holds within easy reach, but some of them are small enough to make nonclimbers worry and sweat. People with any climbing experience at all should have no trouble....[more]   Browse More Classics in Oregon

This is my first addition of an area or route, hope I did it right.

I'm not sure of the name of the route under the second TR anchor I found. It's around 5.5 in difficulty, much like Kindergarten Crack. Should I add the other route as "Name Unknown", or just leave it out? Because of the short length and the ease, I doubt anybody will cry about not finding a route description here, but for completeness I wouldn't mind adding it.
