Pitch 1 anchor. The Bishop in background

Description 

A great low grade ramble with an interesting crux thrown in.

P1 (32m)
Easy ramble up the face

P2 (13m)
Scramble up then climb the corner weakness to the summit

P3
This is where things get interesting. Downclimb from summit into chimney and step across to the other side. Can be quite comitting depending how tall you are. Well protected. From here it is an easy ramble to the other summit of Mitre. Walk off

Location 

Start at South side of Mitre Rock

Protection 

Standard Arapiles rack. Plenty of nuts, some cams and some slings.
