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.1) 4b, 14m. Follow Diocese to the point just before it rejoins the wide corner-crack. Traverse right, around the arete and onward to the first stance of Bishop's Rib. 2) 5a, 25m. Pull over the overhang above 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.3) 20m. Climb easily up and left to the summit of the buttress. © Rockfax
