One gear, one mixed, and five sport routes comprise the Bishop sector. Grades range from 5.10- to 5.12-. Heelium and Flogging the Bishop are popular 5.12- lines. Nuts and Bolts is two pitches, the first of which is mixed.

This wall is shaded until approximately 2pm.

Getting There 

Disembark and hike straight up the rocky drainage for approximately 15 minutes. The strenuous hike involves a small amount of scrambling but is over soon enough.

Follow the right branch when the trail forks near the base of the cliff. The first wall is the Bishop. A vertical red face contains three sport routes. From left to right these routes are: Flogging the Bishop, Heelium, and Sacramental Whining.
