Scramble around the base of the Owl rock. Start up the crack stemming the base of a tree in a strait in flairing crack. Hands, a little offwidth and more bomber hands lead to the bolted anchor at the base of the Owl offwidth roof. Climb up and traverse left under the roof on thin face holds with a pin for protection.
You can rappel from the bolted anchors just barely with a 60m rope back to the ground dispite the Reid guide saying it's 160ft. It's not, it's 100ft almost exactly. If doing the second pitch, good luck. Decend by picking your way and figureing it out on y
