What's the status on this cliff now... private?

Nope, it's public Dvr Mtn Parks, but it's prohibited to rock climb due to our visible, noisy, unsanitary, filthy, scumbag nature.

Now the gumby hiker throwin' trash all over the ground, or the meth addict lookin' to get some tweak; come on in, the water's fine!!

Stumbled on to this today - great to see. You got a Base Camp mention - that's huge! I remember Weebles Wobble, both the route and the genesis of the name. There were a few of them, weebles that is, around in those days. Hope they are doing well! Might have done Cheeses of Nazareth, too but not sure. It looks so familiar. If it's not open to climbing, let's get it open. City of Denver might be responsive. There was a thread on opening DMP areas to climbing some time back.

Good old Ocelot. I miss the second buttress a lot. There are some great flaring wide slots back there that are to die for. We actually would ride our bikes up 285 with packs and then pull off a solid climb and peddle back to Denver at night. Oh so Hermann Buhl as only hopelessly hooked young climbers could be. Anyhow I think it's a shut down deal regarding climbing there.

I was taken up there by a "climber" that I met through my ex wife's work in I think about '81. This guy was pushing 300 lbs easy, and he had me lead some short roof thing on the extreme right side (around the corner) of the second cliff in your picture. It was about a 5.8 or 5.9 roof and pretty short. I don't remember much except the rope burn, kidney punch, and flat spot in my rope I got when he fell on the roof and I had to hold him for what felt like hours (prob. 3 or 4 min.) before he had me lower him about 20 ft with my stich plate. I sure wish I'd put in shorter slings to my anchors (had them long so that I could see over the edge).
