Description

Shady almost all day, very secluded, trad only. Has a crack with some loose bits but still a good crack for bishop.

Getting There

From the hikers summit at Bishop Peak, look toward SLO city and hike down the ridge on deer trails in the direction of the WWW Pinnacles. Once you're about halfway down the ridge and it begins to get steeper, find two boulders on top of the ridge. Stand on them and look left. You'll be looking at the top of the route. From the boulders scramble either down the right side of the formation through some brush or scramble to the top of the route, set an anchor and rap in.
