The Owl 5.8+ 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  California : High Desert : ... : The Black Boulder
This is a route from the So Cal Sport Climbing guide, it was rated 5.8. The crux move feels harder, I believe the guide is wrong or some hold must have fallen. Shorter route, with many ways to start from the ground. Easy climbing until you hit the main face, then pretty smooth after the crux.
