Description

Another great climb on Emerald City. A great circuit for this area is to access the ledge and do all 5 adjacent climbs without untying your shoes or rope.
Just right of the obvious scoop at the bottom of Flying Monkeys lies another bolted line. Climb up the edge of the "dish" and head for anchors at the top. There may be no particular crux on this climb, but it is not without some hard moves. The holds are small, but mostly good. Wear your edging shoes!

Location

The approach trail to Emerald City leads up below a large ledge,perhaps 10 meters up that lies below a flat, vertical, brown and tan striped wall. Access the ledge via scrambling to the left and arrive at the base of 5 sport climbs, from left to right being:
Flying Monkeys, Ruby Slippers, Diamond In the Rough, Oz, and Lollipop Kids.

Protection

6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

FYI- The left-hand anchor bolt on this route is BAD. Old SMC hanger on the most rusted 3/8" stud bolt I've seen in the Red. The right hand anchor bolt is brand-new, so thats comforting. Oct 16, 2012
