This area includes an interesting variety of moderate climbs. The Owl's Perch pinnacle offers great views with a bit of exposure. A good place to check out when Cracked Wall is too crowded or you need a little adventure. Some poison oak must be negotiated between the top of Cracked Wall and the Perch.
These climbs are located above Cracked Wall on or near the detached spire called Owl’s Perch. The best way to access the spire is to lead one of the routes on the right side of Cracked Wall - such as “Mouse Maze” (5.9) or “Lama” (5.10d R).
