...which is another elegant step-through.

Description 

A sustained and challenging route. Start just left of the tunnel. Work up and left past the first bolt, and continue up the face to a stance below an angling, guano-covered crack. Traverse right on thin holds (crux) and continue up past an overhang. A final hard moves gets you to the anchor.

Protection 

7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Accidentally climbed this instead of Owl on the Prow.
Great climb! If you're feeling in the mood for some technical, shmeary fun, definitely check this one out.

I as well accidentally climbed this instead of Owl on the Prow and I liked it more! It is a lot of fun, but I thought it was easier than Owl on the Prow, not sure 11d, but I will take it! Red point, roof is bit heady, but once you figure the holds out, it is a blast, the crux is before it.

Chipped, but one of the top five chipped routes at the Sport Park.

I'd say 11b or something, but I traversed on the slopers above the thin holds. I don't know if the slopers are easier, but I am going to assume they are. Either way, this route is super fun and certainly worth climbing.
