Description

This route goes up just right of Hanson's Folly. There are 2 anchor bolts at the top. You climb onto a ledge and then ascend up the pseudo-dihedral. There are many small cobblestone pieces to work with, albeit there are a bit sandy. The beginning might be the crux for some, with a balancy middle section, and juggy finish.

Location

It is right of the Hanson's Folly offwidth.

Protection

2 anchor bolts.

We've climbed that corner for untold years, how'd you come up with that name? Sep 30, 2013

1) When you look at it... near the base - the rock looks kind of like a person making a face saying "Oh." (We have always noticed that being there.)

2) There are some spots on the climb where you go "OOhhhh..." and realize how to ascend.

3) Thought it needed a name and reference, because after researching through every single guidebook, including the small "Front Range Top Ropes" book, I couldn't find any mention of it. Dec 11, 2013

This is not a trad route, there's no gear placement whatsoever. TR off the double bolts at the top, but don't come here expecting to lead this on gear. I led the right-facing dihedral just to the right that overhangs a little near the top and thought it was a good line that protected nicely. Maybe 5.7 or so? Aug 29, 2015
This line is nicely protected. It has been sported out with bolts. Feb 26, 2019

Tom, Do you know what the status is on bolts in the canyon now?

The main page says that it's currently banned, but it seems there are some new bolts popping up here and there.... Mar 3, 2019 · Temporary Report

We climbed the route on 4/27/19, and it is now bolted. I still brought up a few cams and am glad I did, since the bolts were kind of widely spaced, so I was able to get in placements in between. Apr 29, 2019
