Description 

Tight hands in a corner with 1 and 2 camalots to a bulge where it widens a little to 3 camalot. There is a small flare at the top that may take a 4 camalot if you want, and then you're at the anchor. The name of this climb is due to the fact that an owl lives in the cave at the top.


Location 

Left of the Naked and the Dead up on a big stack of boulders. Scramble up and enjoy a little zone long forgotten about. After you jam this gem you won't forget.

Edit: if you have a 4-legged friend there is a touch of 4th class to reach the climb and said nice hang.


Protection 

3 #1 camalots, 3 #2 camalots, maybe a #4. If you have soft hands tape.

Great route. It seems to correspond to route #1 in the guidebook. Best to approach it from the left - easy, but exposed scrambling. The route is actually only ~80'.

Hey Devin neither my wife or I noticed anything sketchy about this anchor. However, both Anunnaki and Closed Course have one new-looking but loose (can wiggle it with your fingers - zoiks!) bolt. Thanks for posting all the beta here, and also for the new routes and anchor replacement you've been doing.
