This is a good beginner crack. Crux move around second and third piece of protection. Great route for learning placement without much technical chalange. Solid feet and hands.


Hike to the top of Owls Head and this is the first route you will come to. Left side of the wall in the narrow crag enterance.


3 mid range cams and one nut. Build and ancher at the top with extended draws or set TR anchor from trees 20ft back from edge.

The top-out to the final ledge on lead is a bit spicy for 5.6

I seem to recall the fingercrack to the left of this, on the upper half of the route, to be extremely fun and thoughtful ~5.9. If youre done warming up on the 5.6, give it a whirl
