Steep! Like the Grotto Walls, OO ofers very little by way of warm-up, but it does have one classic trad line at 5.9 and a smattering of 5.11 sport routes. other than that, expect to crank on some steep, clean granite. For someone looking for mid to low end 5.12 OO is nearly perfect - being shady for a lot of the day, close to the road, and largely well bolted. A 60 meter rope will work for just about everything.
Follow direction to The Second Grotto Wall. Hike back East from the parking on Colo 82 for about 300 to 400 feet and pick out a fain trail up hill to the left. The crag is 5 to 10 min from the road and is the first obvious crag you come to.
