DescriptionThis route climbs directly up the line of bolts that you rap over if you approach this cliff from the top. Bolted by Ward Smith, it was called Project Owl in Jerry Handren's guide. We decided to do it without the roof crack at the top. There is a bivy sized ledge at the top of the face climbing so this seemed like the logical place to end it. Sustained small crimps and balancey moves up a near 90 degree face to a large ledge.
Note: There is currently no anchor on the ledge besides a single bolt to lower off. The next time I go out I'll put in something more permanent. The roof crack is still there for the taking if anyone wants. It should be done as a separate pitch. With rope stretch you would most definitely hit the ledge falling off this from anywhere if you lead it from the ground.
