Owl's answer to Lonesome Dove at Rumney. On the far right side of the Alaskan Wall area, just left of the corner of Wide Owl is a right leaning, rounded, slabby arete. Start climbing on the right side, making use of flakes, then work your way up the arete, with a devious crux a bit more than half way. Turn onto the left side of the arete and continue up the nice face to the bolted anchors at a horizontal seam. If you want to get to the anchors of The Alaskan Slab to the left, you can traverse this seam, protecting with cams.


The right side of the Alaskan Wall Area, the first bolted route left of the big corner of Wide Owl. The White Owl Face is to the right at 90 degrees.


Sport - bolts to a two bolt anchor

Definitely a great 5.10 with a hidden-hold crux that may seem stiff at the grade until you figure it out. Great stone. Mar 31, 2011
