Description 

This rock is all right if you are looking for something obscure and have done a lot of routes in the Cathedral Spires area. There are only three routes and one is not very good. You will get sun the entire day. There will likely be no other people. The rock is the typical granite found in the rest of the area.

Getting There 

Use the same approach as for Snake Buttress. The road to the old Quarry and the rocks now has a no trespassing sign. To avoid this, I parked as for Cynical Pinnacle and walked north on the road until the barbed wire fence begins. I then headed uphill right where the fence began. Once up the hill a ways, you traverse to the north along the hillside. Eventually you hit the gully that goes up to Snake Buttress and the Poop area. Go west up this gully until you can cut to the right (north) to Poop Point. Poop Slab is below. This takes about 35 minutes.

Per Christine Hartman, JeffCo Ecological Services, access to The Bishop is currently across the JeffCo property closed for raptor closures and are subjective to the expensive fines. Legal access via through adjacement private property has not been work out yet.

Featured Route For Poop Point
Rock Climbing Photo: The climb is the crack in the center.

Lies and Propaganda 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  Colorado : South Platte : ... : Poop Point
This is the best climb at the rock. The crack goes up until a slab near the top. The bolts are old and probably 1/4 inch sized. They don't inspire a ton of confidence but are better than nothing. You start by climbing up to a bolt and then enter the offwidth. These moves are likely the crux. The crack gets a little smaller above before you reach a pin and bolt protected slab climbing. None of the bolts look good, but one seems very bad....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

Very interesting and descriptive name for the crag. Can't wait to tour the area. When we were on Aconcagua, we referred to the camp at 16,000 by the same name.
