White Owl is the right hand of the two classic finger cracks running up the sheer White Owl Face. It is one of the earliest known routes at Owl's, besides Michael Hartrich's Hunting Hawks (which nobody has been able to confirm the location of yet), put up in the early 90s. This line starts with thin face climbing up to a square block sticking out of the wall. Mount the block, get your self together, and jam and layback your way up. Exiting the crack on the right and continuing straight up at the top keeps the grade about 11d. Staying with the crack as it arches to the left bumps it up a letter grade or so.


Towards the right side of the White Owl Face, before the partially bolted Little Wing. The square block sticking out of the wall, above the big horizontal is your obvious landmark


Trad gear, from small wires, nuts and cams up to hands size with doubles of the small to finger size. There is a bolted anchor above the ledge. You can get to it via the route Wingless 8+ if you want to work it on TR.

Yeah, it would. I think you might have to get up in a tree with a wide angle to get a good one looking in at it. It is not very photogenic looking up at it from the ground. I only have the old close up of Pat placing gear in the sub area page.

I really want to get some better quality overview pictures for new topos too. Feb 9, 2014
