Description Suggest change

After climbing through the hole on the Tilted Mitten feature, you will get a view of an orange-ish and lichen splattered face with some discontinuous crack features. Climb right from The Mitten to arrive at a hand rail which offers your first chance for protection. Traverse left on the rail and then pull up into a flake for the first crux. Continue upwards in a slight corner leading to another crux. Once over this, follow a path of least resistance up to the ridge that leads to the base of the left side of the Twin Owls cliff.

Location Suggest change

The Lower Twin Owls basically consists of three pitch lengths of choose your own adventure climbing to put you at the base of the Twin Owls proper. The first two pitches of Tilted Mitten will put you in good position to belay for this route.

Protection Suggest change

Long runners are very helpful. There are a couple fixed pitons, otherwise a standard rack of cams and assorted passive options will work well.
