Owl On The Prowl 5.11b/c 6c+ 23 VIII- 24 E4 6a  CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : Owl Prow
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.......[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
