BETA PHOTO: Owl Eyes is a great warm up route


Owls Eyes name came from the original ascent when I encountered an owl that flew out of the left large hole. After that day, I have continued to see the owl return serveral times.
The crux tends to be the transitions over the large hole and to the next bolt. Good hold allows for the next clip.


Route is left of 'Squirel Eye' and is the large, left hole, out of the two obvious holes next to each other on the right side of Pocket Wall. Start the climb under the large hole and climb to the clip on the left side. Mantle into the hole and continue up through the crux, utilizing smears to pockets to get past the small roof. Rap at the two bolt anchor.
