Climb the easy blocky mess between the two chimneys near Sentinel Buttress. Move up through an easy overhang, mixing 4th and 5th class moves and eventually traverse left. I built an anchor way in the back of the wall and extended it to near a small tree at the top of the Hopscotch side gully, but other options likely exist.
The NC Selected Climbs indicates this route may continue all the way to the top, but I have not verified this. It looked like fairly easy climbing from there up. I suspect there are a lot of old lines here so area experts, feel free to add something! The top of the first pitch was about 15-20 feet below the Hopscotch rap station, although it didn't look like one could reach it due to the blank chimney face between.
To help get oriented, the start of Air Show goes up the Sentinel chimney on the right, and the Hopscotch is on face to the left of the left side chimney. Also, the start of this route is frequently wet, or has running water.
When I climbed this (circa June 07) there was a set of cords around a small tree (or two?) at the top of the first pitch, allowing one to rap down the hopscotch side gully.
Continuing to the top and bushwhacking around to the top of Sentinel Buttress

Yes, twice, today to retrieve the gear we left yesterday, and today topping out. He placed gear in lots of places, that being the only point. And we did it in the foot-wear we hiked up in. There is an anchor station atop the first pitch, a nearly level place for the second station. Big news is that the trail along the ridge leads left to a good descent gully. We started climbing at 6pm, were back at the cars at 7:40pm.
Quite a bit easier than most of the other routes at Moore's and a bit less of an actual line. Probably a lot of ways to go. Rapped down the left side gully via a small tree on the left end of the large ledge about mid-way up.
