Not a classic by any stretch of the imagination, but another short, moderate route to complement the other routes in this area. A good route for beginning crack climbers or someone looking for a first trad lead.


This climb is the furthest left route at the School Yard. Climbs the dihedral directly above the trail.


A few cams, up to #4 or #5 Camalot. Bolted anchor.

Thanks for the easy first trad lead. The Schoolyard has taught me so much.

Sweet, that's great to hear after spending so much time and putting in so much elbow grease establishing climbs, building up base areas, and taking care of the trails. Enjoy!

Didn't touch the dihedral really at all. Stayed in/on the deeeeeep off-width. Even found a place to put my rarely used #6!
