Bishop's Peak is located in the beautiful college town of San Luis Obispo, CA. The crag is located on the most prominent mountain peak in SLO, with a short beautiful hike through lush forest overlooking the town below. Although other walls cover the area, Cracked Wall is most visited, as it contains the widest variety of difficulty. Routes on Cracked Wall range from 5.6 to 5.12+. The crag is located directly off the walking trail with perfect areas to belay from, underneath shady trees and beautiful rock. The top half of each route finishes above the tree line, where, while you shake out and get psyched for the finishing moves, you can look back and see an even more spectacular view of SLO. Every line is bolted, with an approach from either side of the crag to set up top ropes across the wall. Climbers mainly consist of laid back college students who range from beginner to advance climbers, all of which are stoked to climb, and help out. In other words, this is a great place to bring beginners, or crush hard if you are an experienced climber. Pack a lunch and a hammock to belay from, meet some SLO friends, and enjoy a nice day on beautiful Bishop's Peak, Cracked Wall. Enjoy the SLO life!
