Great route on a great little tower. Part of a fun Arches weekend with Owl, Bullwinkle, Elephant Butte and U-Turn Canyon. Livin' the Dream!

Sustained 5.8 moves on steep and juggy holds, some offwidth, body jams etc. Really cool summit. Easy downclimb from true summit to rap anchors.

2nd time climbing, easy leading, well protected, nice summit. Would not mind repeating this one again.

With Will and Mason about 8 am. It was a beautiful morning with lots of tourists watching. I felt the crux was when the crack meandered left and offered awkward fist jams. The lower portions of the climb went like a gym climb, which was fun. We lowered each other rather than rappel. The sandstone on top doesn't look too strong.

Climbed Owl Rock via standard route with my 7-year old son and five friends. Fun trad lead with great pro, great summit views.

Date Climbed: Feb 8, 2012


Did after Bullwinkle. Faith decided ~1/3 up that she didn't like it, & didn't have enough pieces for her comfort, so she lowered, & I led. After Bullwinkle, I was pleasantly surprised. Rock was comparably way better than Bullwinkle, with no death blocks en route, & the pro' was good. Perhaps the nicest thing was the climbing- thoroughly enjoyable! Scramble to summit from anchor provocative too (glad I had a double-length runner along :) ). Great little climb! 3rd(?) desert sandstone spire. Faith came back & led it later, which was cool.

My 2nd ascent with Joe K in tow this time. Folks are rapping off the top pin because they are afraid to downclimb back down to the fixed rappel. Leaving huge grooves on top. Please quit doing that. Great weather, only one other party this go around. Good to combine with Tonka Tower why you are out there.

Totally whipped from Standing Rock the day before, we wanted to climb something short and moderate. This fit the bill perfectly. The climb is really fun and worth doing.

4/16/11- climbed the owl w/aaron as our fourth, and final tower of our weekend trip. steep, airy and exposed crack was a pleasure to climb as the holds were great and your blood was rushing as the crux section tried to push me left out of the crack. super climb!

11/27/14- twilight start and finished in the dark. the scramble to the summit is interesting when you can't see much outside of your headlight bubble!

Great day with Stacy, Megan and Jonathan. Zero wind. Fast and furious easy 5.8 trad pitch, but several couples in front of us took an enormous amount of time. Like waiting at Disney World on an October weekend I am afraid.

I wasn't planning on climbing this but the first day I hit Moab I decided to have a look at Arches. The Owl just looked too cool and next thing I knew I was standing on top.

Fun little tower. My second desert tower of many to come.

nice route but the heat and a night of drinking made me get sick while trying the crux. At least I warned my partner and she very quickly moved out from under the climb. at least she didn't panic and take me off belay.
