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.


It is right of the Hanson's Folly off-width.


2 anchor bolts.

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

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.

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?
