Description

This is the burly horizontal crack on the lower portion of the steep Open Spaces Wall, that traverses right from the start of Owl's Highway, out around the arete and along to a steep exit. This is an exciting route, only marred by some gravelyness in the horizontal crack. It is pumpy! as the feet gradually get out of reach.

Head up the corner crack of Owl's Highway until you can reach out right and clip a bolt with a long sling. Keep traversing the crack right until you can clip a bolt and head up steep moves to a ledge and a bolted anchor.

Location

Head down left past the Smoky Dike walking under a steep wall until the trail narrows down and you step up onto a flat block with the crack in corner of Owl's Highway above.

Protection

a few bolts and cams, hopefully a fixed hex at the start of the Highway. Use long slings at the start to get less rope drag.
