One of the longest routes on Stanage, Bishop's takes a zig-zagging, discontinuous line up the large buttress that holds Inverted V. Though it is the original line, it seems to branch off of several other climbs on its way to the top. Start at the prominent flake (Zigzag Flake Crack) and make tricky moves right off the ground. Move left at the first opportunity onto a ledge with trees. Boulder up a little chimney until standing on a boulder. From here, Zagrete breaks right while Bishop's goes up and left. Follow the finger cracks (no real jamming) up to a small corner, then move on horizontals to the top and a fun mantle.


To the right of Robin Hood and Inverted V. Start on the enormous left-facing flake of Zigzag Flake Crack.


Adequate hand-sized gear. Anchor placements at the top are among the worst at Stanage- I used an awkward crack to the left of the topout; not recommended.
