The Ogre is a rather big boulder, that has two fine lines on it. The Ogre is the left leaning offwidth crack that is fairly overhanging, with a crux finish via a small Y in the crack where it promptly turns to fingers. This route faces east. On the southwest side of the boulder is another route to the top, an unnamed 5.10 hand/fist crack.
After cresting the summit, one starts downhill continuing west. After a few minutes of walking, the road turns into a nicely maintained dirt trail. The Ogre can be seen as the biggest brown boulder in the near distance. The trail takes one directly to it.
Standard rack with something big. Besides the other crack mentioned, there is no easy way up to set up a TR.

Little known fact: Offwidth attracts women. Greg...

With all due respect, I was not on the FA of this route. My guess is that it was Rick Piggott and someone.
