The western and more traveled side of Owl Rock, this area is often over-looked, but worthy of a trip. Routes here are bolted, mixed, and pure trad. Anchors are found on most of the routes, yet you may need to build your own and exit via a fixed rappel. This wall is tall, but not giant. Bring a full rack of gear and a 60 meter rope. If you visit this area, don't miss the classic test piece, Owl Roof, or the fun, sporty lines to the right, under the name Snack Break.
Park off the road at the King of the Throne or the Bloody Fingers Lot. Walk the road to a faint, but easily visible trail that skirts the wall.

Climb over a small bulge to an overhanging crack. You'll need to stem a lot and make sure to place good gear before tackling the overhang because it doesn't let up too much after that. It is more difficult and awkward than it looks. Climb up and right on good ledges/edges but it is very run out till you get to the two bolts before the anchor. The guide book I have says it's 5.9 but it says, "probably hard for it's grade"....[more] Browse More Classics in ID
