DescriptionThis tower is distinctive in its hunchbacked profile as seen from Isabelle Glacier. The third major tower on the north-south Kasparov Traverse from Shoshoni to Apache, the Bishop provides a short climb on very clean and solid rock.
Start on the east side of the tower and make a few bouldery 5th-class moves to gain the north ridge. Tiptoe up the slabby ridge to the summit. This is a short but enjoyable tour with plenty of exposure to complete the alpine feel.
