Climbing Area Index / Owl's Cliff: Left Cliff / Lonesome Owl (5.10c)
Directions:  Located on the right side of the Alaskan Wall Area, just left of the corner of "Wide Owl". It is the first bolted route left of the big corner of "Wide Owl", a right leaning, rounded, slabby arete. The White Owl Face is to the right at 90 degrees.
Description: Owl's answer to "Lonesome Dove" at Rumney. A great 5.10 on excellent rock with a hidden-hold crux that may seem stiff at the grade until you figure it out.
    Pitch 1: Start climbing on the right side, making use of flakes, then work your way up the arete, with a devious crux a bit more than half way. Turn onto the left side of the arete and continue up the nice face to the bolted anchors at a horizontal seam. If you want to get to the anchors of the routes to the left, you can traverse this seam, protecting with cams. 75'

Gear: Draws - All bolt protected, with a two bolt anchor.
Descent: rap the route
History:  Chris Smith
