Comments: Feels 10d or 11a to me. Easily top roped from P Crack anchors using a Black Streak bolt as a directional. Difficulty maybe has changed over the years due to holds coming off?

Comments: I found three gear placements on the face above the crack. Two #7 DMM offset nuts go in within a foot of each other about 10-15 feet above and a few feet right of the bolt. A .75 camalot goes in a few moves higher and left of the nuts (an equivalent sized alien would probably go in better as it is three cams not four and is slightly narrower than a camalot). Good stances for all three placements. One of the nut placements seemed good to me, the other just okay. The cam placement was in a sh... more >>

Comments: Nice, direct line. Note there is ground fall potential on the lower part of the original spring route line on 5.6-5.7ish terrain. Also, the direct line can easily be top roped from the original line anchors. Vickie and I have done the original line many, many times over the years and finally got on the direct (What took us so long?). It is a worthy variation and goes at a surprisingly mellow grade. It would be cool to know who got the FA and in what year.

Comments: Does 5.7 get any better? Bomber Knob slings go in wherever you want them. IMO no need for other types of pro. Retrieving your rope can be iffy as the many plates and knobs can lead to tangle.

Comments: Mike is right! Insane and super classic. I'll add "stunning". Hour hike through the forrest on well marked climbers trail is chill, too.

Comments: Worthy route. "Hero" climbing through the roof was memorable, whole line was quality fun.

Comments: yes, super fun. I recommend hanging the first draw while lowering off post partum (or stick clip).

Comments: Agree with MM; imo the route shouldn't be "R" rated. Worthy route, fun moves, good rock quality.


Location: California > Central Coast > San Luis Obispo > Bishop Peak > Shadow Rock > Battle of the Bulge (5.11a)
By: David Delkeskamp When: Feb 13, 2017

Comments: I did the single biner on the first bolt as Kristin suggests and it worked well. I pre-hung a (really) long sling off the second bolt of diamond to avoid a potential grounder for the leader (me). Probably 5.8 slab terrain in the ground fall zone getting to that second bolt of diamond. Not sure if I got into the "10c variation left of the bulge" or not. Either way this is primo shadow wall stuff here. Fingers didn't hurt until the next day.


Location: California > Central Coast > San Luis Obispo > Bishop Peak > P-Wall > Poor Man's P Crack (5.10a)

Comments: (Another) fun variation: Start on first few moves of Spring Route, clip bolt #2 of Epidural, head over to Rusty's Cave route, and before clipping chains on Rusty's, head up Poor Man's P Crack. Yields a nice long "mixed" trad and sport pitch. A few cams to 1" and a #3.5 camalot will get you up to the PMPC bolts. Several slings. 70m rope gets you down.

Comments: Worthy route. The position, length, and fun moves more than make up for the chossiness. All trad gear and only trad gear (unusual for Bishop Peak) gives EC, for me, its charm. I went left up high and finished at the "Poor Man's P Crack" anchors. A small cam can be placed as a directional about 30 feet below and 15 feet to climber's right of the PMPC anchor if you want to top rope EC from the PMPC anchors.

Comments: Stellar line! Legit crack moves lead to sweet face. Relatively long pitch length and solid rock quality enhance. At the top of the crack go left (a few easy face moves) to "Out of Hangers" or right (5.8ish traverse) into "P-Crack". As other posters have noted, going straight up puts one smack dab into "R/X" terrain. Gold sized and smaller camalots sew up the crack. Both the "P-Crack" and "Out of Hangers" finishes are classic.
