OverviewMany climbers experience Owl Rock as their first desert tower. From a distance, the rock quality appears dreadful, but the sandstone is miraculously solid and sucks in good protection. One of the steepest 5.9 desert climbs, only the presence of unusual jugs prevents the route from being 5.11. While you climb mostly on the featured face around the obvious crack, the two cruxes do require hand-jamming skills. The leader needs desert experience and the follower needs some crack experience to pull through cruxes. Try to look good as tourists will gawk and take pictures.
