Description

A two pitch slab climb that combines well with Bishop Jaggers. Excellent friction climbing with adequately spaced bolts.

P1 (5.9+/5.10). Start from atop the broken rock. Crux near the first bolt. Follow three bolts to the shared anchor for Topographical Oceans and belay. Quickdraws.

P2 (5.9) From the belay, head up and right to join the second pitch belay niche for Bishop Jaggers. One can climb to the second pitch anchors for Topographical Oceans as well, which makes an easy rappel(Recommended). This pitch has been re-bolted, very safe. Quickdraws.

Either continue on with Bishop Jaggers, or, continue to the second belay anchor for Topo and rappel.

Typical slabbing and smearing with good gear.

Location

Locate the route directly left of the first pitch flake of Bishops Jaggers and right of Topographical Oceans. There is an obvious line of bolts heading up from a broken rock that one must step up onto to reach the first bolt.

Protection

If combined with Bishops Jaggers, a light rack is needed as well as a bigger cam for the last pitch. The first two pitches are well bolted.

Chuck Graves and I combined Fuzzy Thinking and Topo O for 4 Pitches. Great route. We thought the 2nd pitch was run-out and the last pitch hard, but well protected. Great climbing and setting. Kenny Parker Aug 29, 2009
