After almost grounding out
Ocelot Cliff, 1978.
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.
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.
Weather station 6.2 miles from here

Seems to me that people ought to know that Ocelot is part of the Denver Mountain Park deal, therefore climbing is prohibited.

I climbed there in the early '70s. There was no route info at the time.

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