4 out of 5 stars Hop Sing

For the grade, a good route. If closer in, would love to teach crack technique/leading on it. Nice and long off-set hand crack in great rock from bottom to top. No real crux, could easily be a 5.7 by Jtree standards. Gear belay at the top, hard to set top rope, best to bring up the 2nd. Unfortunately the 5.10a to the right is not that good a route, sketchy start and not sustained. Black Tower offers a few ok routes. But this is a bush whack approach for not that many good climbs. Miramontes guide indicates a limited amount of sun when in reality this wall gets a solid portion of mid-day sun in January. The best way off all routes is the fixed rap on the sport climb way off to the right. I had no problem walking out to the anchor but some might want a belay.
