Face climb for 15-20 feet, with a slightly bouldery start (crux). Move right to a small right-facing corner. Follow a small diagonal finger crack right to a second, larger right-facing corner. Continue following another small diagonal crack until you reach the top few feet of Rock Hop.

Most of the route after the bouldery start is 5.4


Start same as Whirlpool, 15' right of Hydraulic next to a slopey mossy area.
