Description

A sustained and challenging route. Start just left of the tunnel. Work up and left past the first bolt, and continue up the face to a stance below an angling, guano-covered crack. Traverse right on thin holds (crux) and continue up past an overhang. A final hard moves gets you to the anchor.

Protection

7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Accidentally climbed this instead of Owl on the Prow.
Great climb! If you're feeling in the mood for some technical, shmeary fun, definitely check this one out. Jul 11, 2010
I as well accidentally climbed this instead of Owl on the Prow and I liked it more! It is a lot of fun, but I thought it was easier than Owl on the Prow, not sure 11d, but I will take it! Red point, roof is bit heady, but once you figure the holds out, it is a blast, the crux is before it. Sep 19, 2012

Chipped, but one of the top five chipped routes at the Sport Park. Jul 8, 2013

There is more than one way to climb this route, so the difficulty ranges from 5.11b to 5.11d. The cool direct line stays on the face & avoids the bat shit crack. One of the photos show the climber spanning from a jug to a edge on the face. This is an easier way to climb the direct line, if you have the wing span. I have always stepped right a few feet lower off a finger lock (avoiding the jug). This way is full value.

The easiest line continues from the jug up the right-angling bat shit crack. Jul 29, 2017

Slightly ironic and just a guess, but if there were no drilled holds, this climb would probably go all naturally at about 11+ (the same grade if you don’t use the natural holds, just the drilled ones). 5.11 if you use every hold on the route. Aug 19, 2018
