<< The Spire < Bishop's Rib | Terrier's Tooth > None >>
Although not one of the well known classics of Chair Ladder, this hybrid is a very worthwhile climb that travels across some of the best bits of Bishop's Buttress and finishes up its right arete in a very spectacular position. Start as for Diocese.</br>1) 4b, 14m. Follow Diocese to the point just before it rejoins the wide corner-crack and pull right around the arete and traverse to the first stance of Bishop's Rib. </br>2) 5a, 20m. Pull over the overhang and make hard moves up right onto, and up the arete to a wide break. Climb the arete using wide, flared cracks to a good ledge.</br>3) 20m. Climb easily up and left to the summit of the buttress.
