Kipp Schorr in the crux


Pockets. Start on the lowest pockets just right of the vertical seam. Traverse left on pockets, then up to a hard move to and from a bad crimp, and continue up to the horizontal crack and easier ground.


The obvious, overhanging pockety face. Look for the thin horizontal crack about 10 feet off the ground. Just up-canyon from My Heart Grew Wings...

Grade and quality score are for the original line - not the new version using the high chipped edge and traversing in.

Super fun, great movement, tall but easy finish. V7 if you're tall, V8 if you're short.

And whoever chipped that hold up there.... You're a sad person.

Shit, that was my beta. Didn't know it was chipped, now to rework the start. Just out of curiosity, which hold is chipped, the far right high one? Because if it's the middle - just about everyone uses that one for a heel...

Not to stir things up, but is it possible that hold occurred from natural breakage, freeze/thaw, etc??? It would not be the first Bishop climb to change over time (Mandala, Rave, Everything at the Sads), or have a hold "discovered" (Saigon). Just wondering as I've been trying this climb for a few years and have always used the high beta.

Always seemed like V8 to me but I did it before the chipped hold appeared. And it did just appear one day as the obvious result of very aggressive "cleaning." It's the high edge above pockets, what some people are describing here as the "crux crimp." Lol. It's just not the same problem with that hold because the drop knee or deep flag one gets without it is a thing of beauty.
