DescriptionThis blunt arête has shattered the egos of many suitors. Eek your way up the polished prow by hugging the arête and using some small side pulls for the left hand. Top it off with a adrenaline infused mantle. A sit down start has been done (F.A. Randy Puro) and checks in at V8.
Originally named for local hardman Mike Pope, although he claims he never climbed it. This problem is a real Bishop gem and should be attempted by any visiting climber; it is considered a proud send despite its rather meager grade. Consider that it was given 5.10+ in the old guide.
