Kindergarten?

Hey,

I'm keen on heading up to the Kindergarten, but have heard some different ideas about the approach.

So, what is the best (quickest, easiest to locate) approach? Also, what's the angle of the sun like in that place? Does it get full sun and is best to go there in the morning or evening when its cooler?

Any recommendations on problems would be cool too!

Cheers!
Seth.

Setha, these are the approach details I was given by alrob.......

basically,.... from Mt zero car park. you head up flat rock, and your actually looking for the big dead tree to the far left of flat rock. from memory, it was only like 50-100meters from the base. near this tree is a small ramp to scramble up. its the only break in that short cliff line that shoulders flat rock on the left. after you find this and get up it, you continue up the slope and to the left, aiming for the longish orange cave section. if it has heaps of chalk, then you've found lower kindergarden. to find upper kindergarden, scramble up and around to the left to a giant overhang, where the ground is pretty much
white sand.
..................................................................
I don't know for certain about the sun but by looking at the guide it would appear that it would be in the shade in the morning. With regard to which problems will be cool, I am hoping to have a crack at Fairy Head, charlies sex tour , false profit , innocence and bubble trouble. The only photo I could find from RC.com
