This is an incredible arete pitch which sits just right of the Tiger's Tooth offwidth. The second pitch is rarely done but makes for a great summit adventure on the Twin Owls. Approach the first bolt from the left and get ready for the exciting thin crux at the 5th bolt which is very thin. Runout 5.10 climbing takes you to the first pitch anchor.


All of the bolts and the bolted anchor were replaced with ASCA hardware as of 4/05.

Steve finding the solid holds above the first bolt (after a bit of a runout.  A locker on the rope side on the first bolt and a very attentive belayer are very helpful for the start of this route

The bolts and anchor on this Caldwell classic were replaced in May of 2005. Enjoy.
