Description

This is an organizational entry to facilitate additional information on this cliff.

There are at least 40 routes here on this granitic crag. The development started in the 1970s.

Allen Hill, Greg Lomme, and Chuck Grossman are some of the original pioneers for this area. Apparently, subsequently, the area became part of the Denver Mountain Parks system and thus was effectively closed to climbing. Bummer!

Routes here included Weebles Wobble, 9+; Half-Nazi, 6; Groove, 7; Groover Control, 9; Birth Control (sp?), 6; Mitten Direct, 10; Doggie, 8; Weebles Wiggle, 10. Also there are Estrogen Cracks, 6; Cerebral Fluid, 7; Cheeses of Nazareth, 11; Electroshock Therapy, 9; Barakiner Exsurprise, 10.

Getting There

This is near CO 73 & North Turkey Creek Rd. south of Evergreen. From Denver, head west on US 285, go north on N. Turkey Creek. Then, just dream of the potential enjoyment of the public land here...and quietly walk away. Per Jeremy Hakes: the area can be easily accessed by an easement immediately north of the Marshdale Elementary school. Locals use the area for hiking extensively.

Regulations

Per Jeremy Hakes: this is Denver Mountain Park property and therefore climbing is punishable by a $999 fine or 6 months in jail.

Seems to me that people ought to know that Ocelot is part of the Denver Mountain Park deal, therefore climbing is prohibited. Apr 10, 2013
I climbed there in the early '70s. There was no route info at the time. Jul 6, 2013

Even if for posterity's sake, it would be nice to document the lines that had been ascended here. Jul 7, 2013

This area can be seen but not climbed by visiting the Marshdale Elementary School. Climbing is clearly posted by Denver Mountain Parks as the usual $999 fine or 6 months in jail or both. Jan 3, 2016
