Bishop Peak's best aid route? Maybe Bishop Peak's only aid route. Bring your aid tools and don't forget a hook. To reduce rope drag, set up an interim anchor at the edge of the lowest roof. Clip into the anchor, then pull the rope through the draws and drop it back down to your belayer. Enjoy the exposure as you weight your aiders and lean back behind you to clip the first bolt on the upper roof. It's a real "pucker"!
