Description

OZ is a large and somewhat remote area down the road from Split Rocks that offers a good selection of routes scattered about numerous crags. Approaches vary from crag to crag, but expect a thirty to forty-five minute walk on average. Some of the crags require hiking over rough and rocky terrain to reach, and ticks can be present in the washes at certain times of the year. The slightly lower elevation and rugged terrain of the area make this a good bet to escape the crowds of the western part of the Park as well as another alternative for those cold days.

The standout crag in OZ is Emerald City, which offers the best concentration of quality climbs and is home to such gems as The Rattler (5.10c), Snake Book (5.10d), Sonic Temple (5.11a) and Yellow Brick Road (5.11c). Some of the other crags offer a few high quality routes, but be warned that the rock quality varies considerably from rock to rock.

A nice area to visit and escape the crowds of Hidden Valley and such; this part of the Park always seems quiet and has a remote feeling to it.

Getting There
