This is the brilliant finger crack that is on the backside of the Bishop. It is actually the analog crack (it's the same crack) as the Bishop Finger Crack.
It's routes like this that are why I climb. Much props to the old school guys who did this without cams.

Beautiful, with a bit of a boulder problem low, and endurance finger crack higher, becoming easier as you go. Probably a bit soft for the grade.

I could not agree more, on both counts. Respect.

This pitch is absolutely classic! Many runners and finger-sized pieces were helpful. A helmet under the roof is not!
