On Kindergarten Wall. Climb the first cracks of Red Dutch until level with the first rap hanger station on that route. Move left out a horizontal finger crack to a large pocket, then climb face and a shallow hanging corner past 5 bolts to the ledge. The left arete is generally avoided except for a short section near the fifth bolt.


Between Red Dawn and the arete on the left side of Kindergarten Cliff. Rappel from the rap ring station as for Red Dawn. 60m rope fine for rappel.


Gear to 2" for the lower cracks, plus 5 bolts.

The fourth bolt is currently hangerless but can be cinched with a wired nut. This situation will be rectified within the next couple of weeks.
