Description:

1) Begin at the top of the Catch the Wave drainage and climb dirty slabs past a large mossy ledge on the left below an overlap. 2)Climb up past a bolt and hand traverse right past a fixed pin. Face climb up to a prominent crack that diagonals up and right. 3) Step left off of the ledge and layback the corner to an overlap. Stem and layback the overlap to a small stance with a fixed pin. Stem and jam up the corner above to a thank-god jug finish and belay on top of a large flake. Rappell the route.

4 out of 5 stars Notes of FA

For me this my first time climbing at Hatcher. Very demanding move to pull the overlap. Steve G. led. We looked at the slab above but only way to progress was out right. We graded it 5.11 on FA. The climbing guide rates it at 5.10
