Description 

Located on the Owl Prow rock. This route is the second to the left from the tunnel and is probably the best route on the rock. Ascend steep to overhanging rock via liebacks, jamming and jugs. There are a couple of different cruxes and it even requires a bit a crack climbing know-how....

Protection 

7 bolts to 2 Fixe rings.

A short, fun route. A little beta: I used a right-shoulder scum on the first crack/dihedral that worked nicely. Once you get past the third bolt, use the arete to your left. A right toe hook to gain the jug at the top of this arete comes in handy. The rest is jugs or slopers to the top.

I found clipping the anchors on this to be the crux. It's got scattered jugs above the second bolt, but it's pumpy up to there and beyond. Pretty great route, altogether. Fun technical stuff mixed with pure burl. Looking at the pictures of folks on the crux on this climb, it clearly goes in many different ways, making it reasonable for those of all heights.
