Grandma features some great steep lines on her beautiful vibrant lichen-colored northwest face, and the amazing 45+ foot highball: the 'Southwest arete' if you want to get high on good terrain.
Grandpa is no joke; he offers some of the proudest and most serious lines in Bishop: 'Evilution', on the beautiful and severely overhanging south face, visible from the road. In January of '09 Kevin Jorgeson put up the boldest highball in the country, the 45+ foot 'Ambrosia' 5.14X, on the gently overhanging and massive east face.

For the mere mortals, try 'Cave Problem' v4 on the southwest face.
There is a parking area on the right just before reaching the boulders.
