"Flying Monkey."  5.6.  Weird, wet, and mossy chimney (with bolts!) left of the prominent crack ("Tinman").  Haven't climbed this.  I'm guessing you can stem up it (it's pretty low angle).  Doesn't look too hard, but it is pretty mossy and slick on one side, so it looks ripe for cool face-planting.  Clean it and climb it!  TR anchors at the top.

Well said, Chris. I can neither condone or condemn the man with the drill. Oz was bolted tastefully, and as far as this crack goes, I say why not? You need large gear for it, something I really would not have for Redrocks. The more fun leadable stuff the better? The more stuff I can challenge myself, why not? Bring in small rack, a bunch of draws and presto! Let's make the day out of it. Instead of one fun main wall, how about 4 or 5 other great areas to play in? Squabbling aside, let's accomodate the greater number of us in this amazing sport while staying together as one, tastefully of course. Dec 15, 2011

Enough negative input. Oz is a great crag and is only bolted where needed. There is no need for R or X rated routes in a small climbing area like Redrocks. Most of the people around the Cape Ann climbing community area (at least that I have bumped into) are totally stoked these areas are being revived. And we locals are reviving them with as little impact as possible. Go Climb! Dec 12, 2011

I don't know, but given the history of bolting and chopping in the area, I think most of these bolts will disappear.
I don't know if this is right or wrong as I have not climbed here in quite a while, but it certainly has been this way in the past.

I do love the rock, though! Dec 12, 2011
