This route gets you to the top of the highest point on Bishop Peak, the True Summit. The crux is the last move just before you top out.


From the Hikers Summit (or east summit)head west till you get to the cluster of rocks that look to be the highest point. Start on the east side atop the block. You can't miss it. Once you're on top, you can Top Rope Meltdown & Asymptote.


4 draws. 2 bolt anchor on top. Bring long slings or cordellete if you want to top rope one of the adjacent harder routes.
