East face of Teaching Rock.
To make this a 5.6 climb from bottom to top, start in the chimney between the east side of Teaching Rock and a small pillar. Move the face of Teaching Rock and continue up this consistent route with lovely views. There is also a 5.8 start available (see Sinbad Direct)
Approach The Camel from the Rim trail to find Teaching Rock (another name for the "hump" of the camel). Head on trail around the south side of Teaching Rock to reach the east side. Rappel or walk off.
The first bolt is past the chimney.
Three bolt anchor at top (shared with 5.9 west face climb on Teaching Rock)
