Climbed everything else at Bishop Peak? I guess you'd better head here. A little steeper than I'd want to walk up, but a little too horizontal to really appeal. There's one questionable move on the whole rock. Slab central. Maybe it's good practice for leading on slab? God help you if you actually fall here.

Getting There 

From the main trail, go up past the fence and just before it cuts back into the trees, head right on the climber trail. Head left at the first cut back. Follow this up to P Wall. Keep heading left until you find yourself with Garden Wall on your left.

You can also go straight up over the small overhang for a variation called Look Ma, No Hands (5.6/5.7). Once you set up an anchor, top rope your own variations. Some nice views, no crowds, and a great place ...[more]   Browse More Classics in California

This is a fun wall to climb for beginners to intermediate climbers. The slabs are easy lead climbs to set up a top rope and then you can play in the corner crack system. The poison oak is Baaaaad.
