RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


The short, solitary pillar of rock perched on the southwestern flank of White Rock houses one obscure line to its summit, and a few other lines that have likely been done.

Getting There 

Approach from the lost creek parking lot in Willow Springs. Head south on the trail as if walking to White Rock Springs until the grade to your left eases. Walk up this toward two large boulders in the hillside, and above these cut straight to your right, arriving at the base of the Owl shortly thereafter. 15-20 min.
