Description

Oz is a great sport and trad area of Redrocks. Only 30 feet tall, it is short but sweet for slab and crack climbs. Also, it is a great alternative for when main crag is end to end with TRs. It is pretty shady here, but most of the rock dries pretty quick. TR anchors present fall of 2011.

There are also some awesome boulder problems that run across the top of this crag. Follow the trail marked with tape either from the left side of auntie em, or from the right side of the crag starting at oz boulder.

Once on the pipe line, follow about 100 yards uphill until you see a tree stand in a tree 10 feet up on the right, Oz is about 50 feet in the woods to your left. It is approximately 1/3 mile from parking lot.
