Description 

Typical City climbing. Moderate sport and trad routes from 5.7 to 5.11d. Snack Break 5.10a and Snack Direct 5.8, are probably the two most popular routes here.

Routes near the roof should be avoided while the owls are nesting in late spring to mid summer.

The Breadloaves are very close to this rock and allow for more climbing options.

Getting There 

Located on the downhill side of the Provo Wall on the Lower Breadloaf, Owl Rock is most easily approached from the pullout on its northeast side. This pullout is just up-city from the road to Parking Lot Rock, and across from campsite 66.

Featured Route For Owl Rock
The bouldery start to Night Vision.

Night Vision 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b PG13  ID : City of Rocks : ... : Owl Rock - West
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
