This is the impressive off width to the left and around the corner from bishop. An incredible route with some tricky moves around the half way point and some good old fashion thrutching to make it up. this route is walked right passed usually and I hope will get some more play because it is a blast, bloody elbows and all.

I TR'ed it but it could be lead by the brave of heart. With one piece in the middle it would definitely be an exciting fall from the top.


from Climbers Corner follow the cliff band left around the arete of Bishop and to the next corner where Yellow Zonkers lies.


TR, or big gear for the brave

You can get decent gear in the chockstone, I think I had a green camalot and a red as well. Hardest at the start where it's a bit steeper, and by the time a fall would be sketchy you can get inside the squeeze.
