Description Suggest change

Hopscotch is a short boulder problem to an easy slab. With a spotter or two, this is a reasonable lead (solo), since the crux is perhaps only 6' up.

Get hands up onto the obvious starting holds, and then work up on little feet into a mantle or slap the arete to the right. I did it both ways, and both felt 5.9 or so. Beware that YMMV, and there is no gear at that point. A spotter is more important than a belayer.

I did install a sling anchor on the tree above, in case anybody decides to TR it.

Location Suggest change

Hopscotch is just around the arete to the left of Skip 'n' Go Naked and climbs up the clean, flat face (slightly steep) for a little over a body length before reaching lower angle rock and better footholds. Go around the corner and look for a ledge for fingers at about extended arm height. This is the start of the route.

Protection Suggest change

There is really no protection. Get a good spot. The crux is about a body length above the ground, which, while not rocky, is sloping. Ankles could suffer, and the scrunch problem at the crux could see you pitching off backwards.

There is a sling on the tree up top to belay off of or TR. If soloing, you can traverse to the left and down an easy corner over there to retreat with no rope needed.
