This is an incredible arete pitch which sits just right of the Tiger's Tooth offwidth. The second pitch is rarely done but makes for a great summit adventure on the Twin Owls. Approach the first bolt from the left and get ready for the exciting thin crux at the 5th bolt which is very thin. Runout 5.10 climbing takes you to the first pitch anchor.


All of the bolts and the bolted anchor were replaced with ASCA hardware as of 4/05.

The bolts and anchor on this Caldwell classic were replaced in May of 2005. Enjoy. Oct 12, 2005

I can't say enough good things about this climb! All of the spicy terrain goes at positive 5.10 while the rest is well-protected. The crux is thin, but creative footwork and body-English can keep one from having to yard on the tiny edges. At 6' tall, the crux felt soft for Lumpy 5.12, but things might be more desperate for shorter folks. Either way, go get on this thing... it's brilliant! Jul 27, 2015
