  • Description 

    This is a direct start to "The Owl" and is not the same as "Direct".

    Pick your way to the base of the black streak which extends directly below The Owl handcrack. Move up and slightly left into a small, left-facing dihedral. Place a couple pieces of pro in the back of the dihedral as these are your last pieces until after the crux. Move out and right of the dihedral onto the black streak, and crank some side pulls with tricky foot beta to a good finger lock and a big move to a jug. Continue up The Owl handcrack, and belay at the ledge. Pick your exit to the top, and walk off.

    Location 

    Follow a black streak directly below The Owl handcrack (see the photo).
