The upper section.


A beautiful looking line. More popular on top rope, and one of the most committing highballs in the Bishop area.

Stand Start on top of some rocks to the right of a small pit. Right hand on a glassy two finger crimp-jug and left hand on a small crimp. Pull on or reach up from the rocks to a good jug. From here take a deep breath and take your time placing your feet. Make a long journey up via small crimps and high steps until you can finally reach better holds at the lip and eventually a bucket on top.
From here crawl up and kiss the rock and thank yourself and everyone else for the support and strength for the send.
Then, take out your notebook and check off the high ball climb of a lifetime.

Do this on top rope till you are comfortable with the Holds and with yourself, physically and mentally.


After going down the slopey ravine, this climb is on the tallest face of the block.


First ascent had 36 crash pads. Repeat had around 30. You choose the number.
