Description 

Steep! Like the Grotto Walls, OO ofers very little by way of warm-up, but it does have one classic trad line at 5.9 and a smattering of 5.11 sport routes. other than that, expect to crank on some steep, clean granite. For someone looking for mid to low end 5.12 OO is nearly perfect - being shady for a lot of the day, close to the road, and largely well bolted. A 60 meter rope will work for just about everything.

Getting There 

Follow direction to The Second Grotto Wall. Hike back East from the parking on Colo 82 for about 300 to 400 feet and pick out a fain trail up hill to the left. The crag is 5 to 10 min from the road and is the first obvious crag you come to.

Boys In The Hood 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  CO : Independence Pass : ... : Outrageous Overhang
My notes on Boys In The Hood are from 1998, and were squared up with the old Perkins guide, so I hope this is on target.Hump around the right side of the cliff to the cut-back left. Boys is the fifth or sixth route in from the right and is just left of the pin route. Boys gives powerful, well protected climbing up a steep wall that gets progressively more run-out as you approach the anchor. My notes indicated that some upper body guns are useful (!).Cool route; it is the easiest thing ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
