This is a great, steep, 5.9 crack pitch on the west face of the Lower Twin Owls. Scramble up to the cliff and identify a roof-capped stem slot with the long, left-leaning finger to off-width crack rising out of it. The crack climbing on this pitch is quite varied and there is no real off-width. After one long pitch to a ledge, either rap back to your packs from slings (single 60 barely works if you rap uphill), or, better, continue with Wolf's Tooth or Tiger's Tooth (just up the ramp from the finish).

a rap with a 60 is pretty sketchy, even when rapping uphill. Might be better off with a 70 or walking off, or continuing up to summit. Pulling the roof is a fun move--twin cracks provide great hand placements. Gets a little wide and steep then eases up a bit.
Not sure if a 60 will reach on a rap, a 70 may be needed. Sweet crack climbing and luckily the initial roof isn't bad so you can warmup a little before it is strenuous. Cams to #4 will be good with emphasis on .5-2 inch.
