The road to Green lake has been closed by a property owner disputing a public right of way. The only way to climb Owen from Kebler pass is to climb the south ridge of Ruby being carful to avoid private property on the ascent to the ridge the a traverse to Owen followed by reversing that route over Ruby and back. Otherwise you would need to either continue to Purple mountain then down the East ridge to go around private property on the east side or descend to Green Lake and traverse the east flank of Ruby at about 11,000ft to stay above private property. The most straight forward is to return over Ruby since the other two options involve navigating many many cliff bands.
