Description 

This the first area you come to walking in from the pipeline and probably has the most concentrated section of rocks few of which are climbable.

There are stonewalls in this section of Redrock and it looks as if this area could have been used as a pen at one time.

Getting There 

See above.

This is an obvious problem that has undoubtedly been climbed before (probably in era when boulder problems were rarely named). Also, it is one of the funner problems in these parts. I named it after a red-eyed vireo flitting about nearby. Start down as low as you can on the right and traverse to the crimpy rail in the upper left corner then top out. It has bad feet but decent hands. Smaller climbers will have to work a little harder for this one. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts
