Description 

Originally climbed as an easier way to get to the tops of some of the harder routes on the wall to set up TRs, it is an interesting route in itself. At the far right side of the White Owl face, climb up (often wet) into the left leaning corner that runs along its edge. Follow the corner up and just before its top break left out on to the face, dropping into the flake of Little Wing. Stop at Little Wing's bolted anchor or continue along to those of White Owl or on to Attack of the White Owl/Owl Cliff Club. To get to the latter anchors bumps the grade up to pumpy 5.8+. There is an easy otherwise run out scrambly section between the first two anchors that can be protected by dropping a large cam (#4 Camalot?) into the slot along the edge.


Location 

the far left edge of the White Owl face


Protection 

Trad rack, some slings. A larger cam is handy for protecting against a big pendilum in case of a slip on the easy section past the first anchor.
