A fine crack climb, thin hands. Listed as the only route here in the book at V4.


Straight up from trail on the east rim. Right or East of Atari.


Only space for one pad, stack two maybe. An uncontrolled fall would be very ugly.

One of the best and only splitters in Bishop. Nowhere near V4. If Bachar Cracker is V3/4, this thing is V1 max. It's scarier than hard. If it were on a route, the route would be 5.10, so in that case it might even be V0+. Of course, finger size might matter. I'm just saying it's definitely not 5.12 ... or 5.11. Really deserves more traffic. The landing is worse than Atari though, so take care.
