Wicked Jones Crusher 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  CA : Yosemite National Park : ... : The Owl
This is a fun climb up an orange wall. The bottom is a little hollow and should be climbed delicately, however the holds are cool. The crux is turning a roof with good pro on solid rock. The crack thins down to fingers at the top. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Most of the climbs are approached from the eastern side of the Owl. From the pullout, scramble up 15-20ft of dirt and gain a small trail heading to the right(East). Follow the trail out onto grassy terraces. Hike up-hill sometimes on a trail, and sometimes up slabs until you can't go any higher. At this point, make your way back West to the right side of the Owl. The Mirage should be the first climb you see. The Owl Bypass is down and around from Mirage. Wicked Jones Crusher is up and East.

This is a cool place to hang with friends for a day.

This is a good place to avoid the crowds. A little bit of everything and potential for more.
