Matt Geyer at the 4th bolt of Owl's Staircase.

Description 

Walk toward the spire and look for the line of bolts (hard to miss). Connect the dots and enjoy a couple of big rest ledges along the way. Don't forget to look left after making the last clip! A feeling of exposure here and the view from the top makes the climb even better.

Location 

Follow the thin trail on the right of Cracked Wall. Look for the spire on your left.

Protection 

4 quickdraws. A tiny nut may be desired before the 4th bolt.

There is a pretty loose horn about the size of a softball around the fourth bolt on this one.

Loose horn mentioned above came off, recommend going left on a series of decent but hidden crimps.
