The Dirty Handshake starts midway along the 5.10 Wall, just to the left of Mr. Owl. Sustained crimps and two balance cruxes are separated by a near no hands stance at the halfway point. Classic!

Originally bolted by Ward Smith, this is refereed to by the project name Endless Owl's by Jerry in his N Conway guidebook.

Start down and left of Mr. Owl at a common start with The Gap Abides and follow a line of bolts up and angling gently right. Shares an anchor with Mr. Owl. Watch the end of the rope.


Currently the second bolted line from the right, left of Mr. Owl.


14 bolts and shared anchor of Mr. Owl
