Here's an oft overlooked little gem in the dense forest on the Felsman Loop. Why is it overlooked? Well . . . if you boulder, it's fairly highball and difficult. And if you top rope? Well, there's a couple bolts sporadically placed, but if *you* are comfortable with a single bolt as your anchor and a smallish boulder backing you up, be my guest. Perhaps one of our brethren with drill and bolts in hand will decide that Erik Erikson's solos are worthy of the rest of us.
Hike up the main trail to Bishop peak. Go past the other boulders along the trail (Chlorissa and Pete) and when you get past the fence, hang a right on Felsman Loop trail. You'll go up a bit, and then down, and once you get into the forest section, start looking right, you'll see it. This area is so forgotten there is no climber trail to the rock, but the area around it is well worn.
