Description Suggest change

A 5.3 may not sound like anything worth doing at a crag with so many classic moderates, but Hopscotch is a surprisingly fun romp for the grade. The easy climbing is balanced by nice exposure and a great view of climbers on the more challenging Sentinel Buttress lines across the way like Zoo View.

Starting from the spacious ledge, climb the blocky face just right of a wide crack system (feel free to use the crack if you're carrying big gear. Trend up and right to finish on a nice belay ledge about 10' below the rap station. Building a gear anchor here is a better choice than belaying from the rap rings.

Location Suggest change

Hopscotch is located between Washboard and the Egg Wall, left of the Sentinel Buttress. Start on a spacious ledge above the trail.

Protection Suggest change

Well protected with mostly medium gear; tricams are a good option. Rap from a slung chockstone in a short chimney (check the slings to make sure they're in good shape).
