DescriptionHop Rising Point climbs the pinnacle-looking feature about 150 feet further up the scree and boulder field from the base on Vector Madness Wall. It's actually the southern terminus of another fin of rock, just to the north and a bit west of the Geezer Wall/Vector Madness fin, but the best way to find it is to go to the base of Vector Madness Wall and continue uphill until it comes into sight -- just look for what appears to be a pinnacle with a distinctly smooth summit face broken by a right leaning crack.
The route starts just right of a nice-looking fist crack on the left side of the formation, surmounting a bulge to get established on the face above. Continue up the face staying just right of the left margin to an overhanging crack. Turn the overhang with a jam or two, and continue up the smooth face above linking weaknesses to the final bear hug moves to the summit. A little more cleaning should make this three stars.
