Description

Great toproping (or leading) a couple minutes west of the old Twin Owls parking lot. Now, it lies probably 0.8 miles from the new trailhead. To set up topropes, scramble around either side to the back, and follow your nose to a short chimney between the two little owls, each of which sports a set of bolts. I find scrambling around to the right a bit easiser; both ways are fifth class, so don't do anything stupid. All the routes are worthwhile, with the "Finger Crack" being the most...memorable.

Getting There

From the new parking lot, head west towards the old Twin Owls parking lot ~0.8 miles. Once at the old Twin Owls parking lot, this small crag is just to the west split by a wide crack on its southeast face. Expect ~15-20 minutes.

Per Dom R: a detailed description from the old parking lot (just past the NPS housing) - continue hiking on the Black Canyon trail, follow Batman Rock trail briefly, and go right at a split to the Tooth and Jaws Boulders and the base of Little Twin Owls. For boulderers seeking Angry Man, just after you turn onto the Batman Rock trail is an old park service sign. Follow an old trail uphill for a few minutes into a rocky area.
