This is the main cragging destination by droves on the weekends. You will find one 5.6 crack and a lot of 5.10 and above face climbs that are top-ropable here. Mostly sport, some routes require pro to lead. Enough routes to last you a good day, and plenty of fun projects to spend some time on. Check out Camel, Lama, Western Airlines, Curly Shuffle, and Only Way to Fly.
From the entrance to Bishop Peak hiking area, follow the trail markers indicating Bishop Peak trail. You should head up and then left into the trees. From there, you'll find a post that shows where the climber trail breaks off. This is basically Approaches for Dummies.
