DescriptionA wonderfully lengthy and varied sport route on the left side of the Bishop formation.
Overcome a few surprisingly perplexing bolts on green lichen covered stone. Carefully continue upward past moderate, slightly unsettling, fractured features (I dislodged a few fit-sized pieces with a brush of the hand). Ascend a left leaning dihedral clipping the fixed chain draw. Battle the final steep headwall, using a broken crack, to the chains.
LocationThis is the leftmost route on the Bishop formation. The first few bolts ascend angular green lichen covered rock in contrast to the three routes to the right which start on vertical tan rock. To the right of this route is Flogging The Bishop. There is no route to the left in this sector.
