Tin Man, 5.8.


This is one of Cape Ann's best crack climbs! Start below the crack, it may look a bit moist, but it can be easily be gotten around without getting wet. Start out as if you were going to Ruby Slippers, but take the beautiful, obvious crack of Tin Man to the top.


This is the obvious crack to the right of Ruby Slippers on the left face of Oz.

The crack was a little wet and full of pine needles and cob webs when I did it. I actually brought a small stick up with me to clean webs out of the crack. If it were clean and/or longer, it would probably get another star. All of the other routes here were covered with moss.

I placed a tricam in the horizontal (brown or red I don't remember) then a couple BD 0.75s and mabye a 0.5 in the crack.
