The following areas are closed from March 1-July 31 or until further notice:
Twin Owls, Rock One, Batman Rock, Batman Pinnacle, Sheep Mountain, Thunder Buttress, The Parish, Lightning Rock and Checkerboard Rock are currently closed. The closures include the named rock formations and the areas extending 100 yards surrounding the base of the formation. This includes all climbing routes, outcroppings, cliffs, faces, ascent and descent routes and climber's access trails to the formation.
This is an incredible arete pitch which sits just right of the Tiger's Tooth offwidth. The second pitch is rarely done but makes for a great summit adventure on the Twin Owls. Approach the first bolt from the left and get ready for the exciting thin crux at the 5th bolt which is very thin. Runout 5.10 climbing takes you to the first pitch anchor.
All of the bolts and the bolted anchor were replaced with ASCA hardware as of 4/05.
