4 out of 5 stars Fun

First time climbing this, will definitely be back
to improve and try to red point. Knowing where
to stay in the crack and where to stem out and
lyback would have helped my flailing. Calves
were hurting by the end of this lead. Great pro
and nice line. Traverse was fun, but a bolt would
have been nice. ;)

Not 5.10... Just take your time and watch your feet. It's all there. The traverse is fun though!

4 out of 5 stars The Pope

is holier than thou! Or at least as holy as Bishop's Terrace. Fun climbing that should not be missed, warm on cold days due to aspect. The Direct Finish is tricky for shorter folks.

4 out of 5 stars Fun and strange

Very fun crack. It gets interesting near the top. Rope handiwork is mandatory.

3 out of 5 stars Pope's Crack

Part of a 3 day excursion with Zach. Great weather, no other climbers present all day at any location we climbed. Did not know this had classic status, we just saw the crack and climbed it. I see now that the route goes left for the rap. We went up and right following a seam and then downclimbed to an anchor there. Also see where a lot of folks on MP went on about 5.10, but I climbed several 5.9's at JT I thought harder than this route. Fun though, for sure, just weird finish for such a nice crack.

4 out of 5 stars stout 5.9

good. mental crux is traversing out right at the top to the anchor shared with British Airways (if you go that way). good swing potential there.

5 out of 5 stars doubles

Great climb!
Was helpful to have double ropes for this thing, since it heads left like 30'.
