Description 

Over on the left hand side of the Sporty Owl Area, just before the sharp arete of Talon, is this big corner that requires ripping hard stemmeng and crimping if you hope to get to the top. It is much harder than it looks. Stick clipping the first bolt is highly recommended, as it is high up over a bad landing and it is insecure getting to it.

Location

Protection 

aboute 7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Stick clipping the first is highly recommended.
