Description 

This is a reorganizational entry (thanks to Micah) to help facilitate the L->R sorting, because it "really doesn't make sense when you are going pretty much around an entire rock." This subarea will include routes from the East Face.

Some of the rock on this face is the most solid in The Garden. Enjoy!


Getting There 

Park on the southeast side of Kindergarten Rock. Hike up established trails.

Hayden on the starting moves of Diesel and Dust.  The anchors are visible at the very top of the picture, just right of center.

Diesel and Dust 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- E4 5c  CO : Colorado Springs : ... : East Face
This is the first sport route left of New Era. Start on moderate ground, crimping up solid, incut, iron-oxide rails. Move left and up, then over a bulge (crux), then right to anchors. This is very soft 5.11. A second pitch exists, which is rated 5.11, but it is more like mid-range 5.10, and is high quality face climbing on good holds in an awesome position. Do both pitches, rap once with two ropes, twice with one. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Does anyone have information on the crack directly left of New Era? This would be the crack/chimney that is formed on the right side of the face where Diesel and Dust is. There is a pin lower down on the line about 35 feet up. It's not any harder than 5.7.
