Smack My Bishop


Pull over the roof and move out left.
Kind of an angry thing.

Lynn Wheeler freed this crack in the early 1980's

Maybe your Bishop is the one who should be doing the smackin'...smiles

More fun that home teaching. No offense to Wheeler, but "smack my bishop" is a far superior name. Good gear the whole way. You'll likely lose some thigh skin on this one when you backwards heelhook slide across.

Agreed, it's a good name. There's already a route or two here in the Wasatch that bear the Wheeler name.
