Description:

Perhaps the best problem in Bishop! Start at a prominent flake jug above the grainy slab, and follow the amazing patina up and across to the far right before a long hard pull gains holds leading into the good upper flakes. Take care: The rock at the left has broken more than one leg! Beginning higher, off the top of the low rock makes the problem a little easier (V7).

4 out of 5 stars Really Fun

A great line with some good crimps, finish is high enough that you don't want to fall.

5 out of 5 stars Checkerboard

Super Aesthetic line in beautiful scenery. Good view of Iron Man Traverse. Crimps are really good and provide for some beautiful movement. Awesome line. Stand start is a V7.
