You can approach the first bolt from the left or the right. The crux is reachy and sharp, but the patina face above is moderate and enjoyable. Bring some small cams if the 20ft between bolts bothers you.


This is the right most bolted route on the West side of Owl rock.


bolts and a handful of cams...

I thought this route was totally separate and not bolted. Book says 5.9 also.

If you're not solid on 5.9 I'd recommend stick-clipping first bolt. Crux is before the first bolt.
