1st pitch is LONG! Bring 2 ropes.
2nd pitch is the $ pitch! Stroke the giant tufa and mount it. Yeah baby!
3rd pitch is ok, but was really put in to access other climbs.

That's unfortunate. My notes and memory is the first pitch is a bit chossy taking 10 draws and ending on a ledge with hidden anchor. At the time there was two new bolt holes but no additional anchor. Other mystery holes drilled along the way for no apparent reason. Second pitch took 6 bolts and was kinda technical and the worthy pitch. We bagged it from there skipping the less than stellar looking 3rd pitch and got done with a single 70m... just shy and scrambled the last few feet. Feb 16, 2016

The whole area around Strokin the Bishop has so many bolts on it that it's just plain confusing which climb is which. Someone defaced all the route labels for some reason. I climbed what I thought was strokin the bishop but now that I've read the description on mountain project I have to assume I was on some other unknown route. Great rock climbing, but the number of routes and their overall proximity to each other is a bit of a shit show. Jan 17, 2016
