Trad, 80 ft,
Avg: 3.1 from 84
FA: Rusty Garing, Chip Barclay '71
> Central Coast
> San Luis Obispo
> Bishop Peak
The route follows the broken corner on the left side of P-wall up to the beginning of Impacted Stool Crack and then traverses right to the first bolt. I usually run it out to here but if you want protection, bring those hexes or large cams and long slings. After the bolt, the climb follows the crack up to the second bolt. Once clipped, traverse right and then up to the anchors. You can climb straight up after the second bolt but it's 5.10. This is a great route for learing trad and its fun if you continue up on Letterman to the next anchors and then scramble the rest of the way to the top of the peak.
There are two bolts along the route and you will need gear starting from small to 2.5" Bring longs slings to extend your first couple pieces otherwise rope drag will have you crying.

[Hide Photo] Revised photo of P Wall. Note the added bolts and unused anchors below Jump For Joy and atop the flake (this was once a natural belay). Also note that the toprope anchors high on P Wall Direct/Han…

[Hide Photo] This would be a good pic if it weren't for the old people in the way. Great views from here & the top of P-Wall. I often see people just hanging out here & at the Letterman anchors enjoying the view.
