Begin at the the thin face directly below two bolts. A crimpy and balancy clip for bolt 2 (the crux of the climb). After bolt 2 the route eases considerably by joining with Hippity Hop.


Just right of Hippity Hop. Bolted line approx 20' left of Quaker Oats


Bolts, 2 bolt anchor shared with Hippity Hop

Direct hop is right and down of Quaker Oats about fifty feet in the Nit Nat area, and just right of the chimney that separates nit nat and direct hop. It's on a large detached flake climbing invisible crimps and divots; one of the best thin face climbs in the area. There is another climb that's similar on sven slab left of black death that follows two bolts and hits a arching horizontal crack followed by another bolt to anchors.
