Description 

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.

Named after encounters with Great Horned Owls, this area is a fun spot with a good sense of adventure. Expect morning shade and afternoon sun.

Getting There 

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.
