220m, 6 pitches.

Rockfax Description
(The Bishop) An intriguing line at an amenable grade with an exciting pendulum high on the cliff. Despite being the easiest way up the central section of the lower walls, it doesn't see much attention. Double ropes are a must.
1) 6-, 45m. As for Ypperstepresten.
2) 5+, 48m. Climb half of Ypperstepresten's second pitch, but climb straight up a slab via thin cracks. Pull through a small roof and climb up to a stance.
3) 5-, 35m. Continue up left-facing corners to a tiny stance.
4) 5 A0, 50m. Traverse left, then continue straight up a line of flakes and holds to the left side of the Big Roof (this section is shared with Reisen). Now pendulum left to reach the upper, black basalt dike on Ypperstepresten.
5) and 6) 5-, 105m. As for Ypperstepresten pitches 4 and 5. © Rockfax

Not at all worth the time it took. P1 is rather uninteresting. P2 is pretty confusing and somewhat hard to protect. P3 is very easy and straight forward. P4 is kinda runout but not too hard. Leader did a tension travers. P5 is easy but pretty cool. For the pendulum, I swung over to the basalt column and climbed that to just over the height of the anchor. Falling would be bad, but the climbing feels very safe. A bit hard to find good placements in the basalt, but ok. I led to the top of the pitch, built a solid anchor, and the rest did the pendulum from that. Might be the easiest grade wise, but Vestpillaren would be highly prefered as a way up. You are better off trying to climb a slightly harder few pitches than going through the confusion and fuss on this route.

The Pendulum wasn't clear and has no fixed gear. We pendulumed to a hanging stance in Ypperstepresten and then the second swung back to retrieve the cam from the belay on Storyla. The pitch leading to the pendulum is superb, if a little run out.
