Stem up to first bolt and clip before moving onto slab (under 5'8" may find this difficult). Slab moves to small tree above then traverse left to second bolt. Traverse further left to where wide right-leaning crack meets thinner left-leaning crack. Make a couple of moves up into left-leaning crack before heading straight up to chickenheads. Two more bolts are found higher up the face in areas short on slingable chickenheads....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

Anybody know the name of the 5.12 on the steep side of Owl Rock? It's really good if anybody is looking for a steep sport climb. Interesting movement on good holds mostly, second to last or the last bolt is a little loose. I would bring a couple hand sized pieces to get to the first bolt,the mantle to get to the first bolt can be a little sketch.
