37m. A full height climb with a tricky but solid and well protected crux. Start 6m right of Talk to the Hand, right of a multi-trunked tree. Follow a crack through two overlaps; then climb a narrow slab right of the vegetated continuation crack to reach the belay tree of Bishop's Move. Climb the thin crack above the tree (crux); then trend rightwards, step across an earthy gully, and finish up another narrow slab.

Top half only, as the first half of this route seems to have lived up to its name. Started up Bishop's Move.

Not logging a climb but just wanted to warn people. I was climbing Halfway to Kansas with two friends on Sunday 4th June and there were two guys climbing what I think was 'Landslide Victory'. When they started climbing a huge boulder came crashing down as we were setting up and then as the leader was about 3/4 up the route he warned my belayers to move out the way as the rock was very loose. When they topped out they came round to the belay anchor at the top of Halfway to Kansas and threw their abseil rope down, no warning. They then realised my partner was leading the second pitch and shouted down to her "oh are you climbing up here, you should have said". Instead of waiting for us all to top out they went round to the right handside and started abseiling down carelessly knocking off huge boulders and laughing about it. No concern there may be people below. Its rare to see people in the climbing community being reckless and impatient and it was a shame to see this. I just wanted to warn people that there seems to be a lot of loose rock to either side of the Halfway to Kansas Slab.

Nice climb, feels like a proper adventure for the lenght. couple of bits of crappy rock where protection would be inadvised, nice moves through the crux (well protected as per the guide).

Loose bottom half, careful placement definitely required! Top section is solid and a lot more fun.

Apart from the top this climb is found but the amount off looseness on the topout I found pretty disturbing, nearly pulled off a block which supported several others and I think would have killed me so afterwards felt obliged to abb back down and remove it so as to stop anyone from dying. People still need to be seriously careful with this though.

Lead from the belay point of bishops move after a discussion with Ben. Had to use hex extenders to set up anchors and tie off at the harness because of the impromptu lead climb on. Good problem solving set up and exciting climb.

Main difficulty is trying not to kill your belayer with loose rock. Excellent adventure though and well protected

if you miss the direct route your up shit street! Which is where I found myself, looked so fecking loose I backed off. first time ever! To then watch a crazy oldish dude skip up and retrieve my gear. Offererd it up as crag swag but he refused. Funny as hell, paid him off with a doughnut. Cheeres buster!

Nice climb bit tricky after the big tree. lots of loose rock needs a clean up. Very good route though.
