In the title compound, C20H21ClN2O2, the benzene rings form dihedral angles of 6.35 (5) and 81.82 (5)° with the mean plane of the 4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazole ring (r.m.s. deviation = 0.145 Å). This latter ring adopts an envelope conformation with the CH grouping as the flap. The dihedral angle between the benzene rings is 75.63 (4)°. In the crystal, molecules are linked by C—HCl and C—HO hydrogen bonds into chains along [-201]. The crystal structure also features C—Hπ interactions.
